A team of microbiologists from the University of John Hopkins have developed a test that detects the presence of chlamydia in 30 minutes.
Express diagnostics of sexually transmitted disease, the patients can start treatment much earlier, limiting the spread of infection, reports Science Daily.
Moreover, diagnosis can be done at home. This allows you to not visit the doctor to obtain the necessary advice for the treatment of venereal disease.
The technique, a team of scientists tested in two clinics in Maryland and Ohio. The experiment showed that the new test detects chlamydia in 93% of cases; a negative result — 99 %.
The problem with most STIs is that in the early stages of the disease can be asymptomatic, so patients believe they are healthy and further spreads the infection. Usually patients taking the test, the results obtained in the period from 2-14 days. During this time they will have time to veneroidea spread of the disease.
Studies have shown that sometimes people, even after passing the test, not returning to the results, counseling and proper treatment. Many patients do not return to the clinic for a follow-up appointment due to work or other commitments.
In addition, patients do not seek treatment because of shame about their disease, learn others, including partners. The tests will allow patients to collect a sample of secretions at home and send it for testing.
In this study, doctors collected samples of smears taken at the clinic and put in the liquid. Swabs were taken for clinical laboratory and hand-loaded in a disposable cartridge. The technician has inserted the cartridge into the tool, which has a user-friendly interface for processing and analysis. Each cartridge contains all components needed to complete the screening and guarantees a positive, negative or indeterminate result after about 30 minutes.
