Chlamydia trachomatis is a species of Gram-negative bacteria and obligate intracellular parasite in eukaryotic cells. C. trachomatis infection is one of the most common bacterial sexually transmitted infections in Europe. In women, Chlamydia trachomatis is responsible for a number of infections, including cervicitis, salpingitis, and endometritis, and may further develop into pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). Untreated Chlamydia can lead to severe consequences, particularly in pregnant women by putting their newborn at risk of infection (such as conjunctivitis, pharyngitis, and pneumonia). At least 70% of CT infections in women are asymptomatic. Chlamydia trachomatis infections in men are usually symptomatic, often presenting as urethral discharge or pain during urination (dysuria). C. trachomatis is responsible for urethritis and proctitis (or rectal infection). Occasionally, the infection spreads to the upper genital tract, leading to epididymitis or prostatitis.

S-DiaCTTM is a trusted and easy-to-use molecular diagnostic CE-IVD kit allowing the qualitative detection of Chlamydia trachomatis by real-time PCR in clinical specimens (male and female urine and vaginal swabs) from patients potentially infected by this bacterium.
