    The Chlamydia /Gonorrhea Combo Rapid Test Cassette (Cervical/Urethral swab) is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of  Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae in female cervical swab, male  urethral swab specimens to aid in the diagnosis of Chlamydia and Gonorrhea infection.


    Chlamydia trachomatis is the most common cause of sexually transmitted  venereal infection in the world. It is composed of elementary bodies (the  infectious form) and reticulate or inclusion bodies (the replicating form).  Chlamydia trachomatis has both a high prevalence and asymptomatic carriage  rate, with frequent serious complications in both women and neonates.  Complications of Chlamydia infection in women include cervicitis, urethritis,  endometritis, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) and increased incidence of  ectopic pregnancy and infertility.1 Vertical transmission of the disease during  parturition from to neonate can result in inclusion conjunctivitis or pneumonia. In  men, complication of Chlamydia includes urethritis and epididymitis. At least 40%  of the nongonococcal urethritis cases are associated with Chlamydia infection.  Approximately 70% of women with endocervical infections and up to 50% of men  with urethral infections are asymptomatic. Traditionally, Chlamydia infection has  been diagnosed by detection of Chlamydia inclusions in tissue culture cells.  Culture method is the most sensitive and specific laboratory method, but it is  labor intensive, expensive, long (18-72 hours) and not routinely available in most  situations. Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted disease caused by the bacterium Neisseria  gonorrhoeae. 

    Gonorrhea is one of the most common infectious bacterial diseases and  is most frequently transmitted during sexual intercourse, including vaginal, oral and  anal sex. The causative organism can infect the throat, producing a severe sore throat.  It can infect the anus and rectum, producing a condition called proctitis. With females, it  can infect the vagina, causing irritation with drainage (vaginitis). Infection of the urethra  may cause urethritis with burning, painful urination, and a discharge. When women  have symptoms, they often note vaginal discharge, increased urinary frequency, and  urinary discomfort. Spread of the organism to the fallopian tubes and abdomen may  cause severe lower-abdominal pain and fever. The average incubation for Gonorrhea is  approximately 2 to 5 days following sexual contact with an infected partner. However,  symptoms may appear as late as 2 weeks. A preliminary diagnosis of Gonorrhea can  be made at the time of examination4 In women, Gonorrhea is a common cause of  pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). PID can lead to internal abscesses and long-lasting,  chronic pelvic pain. PID can damage the fallopian tubes enough to cause infertility or  increase the risk of ectopic pregnancy.5
