The Gonorrhea test is a simple immunochromatographic assay for the rapid, qualitative detection of Gonorrhea antigen in the secretary specimen from urogenital system.
Gonorrhea is a curable infection caused by the bacteria Neisseria gonorrhoeae. Gonorrhea is a very common infectious bacterium, a Gram negative, fastidious, diplococci, that can grow and rapidly multiply in the mucous membranes, especially the mouth, throat, and anus of males and females, and the cervix, fallopian tubes, and uterus of the female reproductive tract. Uncomplicated gonorrhea affects approximately 650,000 persons per year (WebMD, 1999). This bacteria can be passed through sexual contact (vaginal, oral, or anal), even without ejaculation, or spread from the mother to child at birth. Gonorrhea is a major cause of urethritis in men and cervicitis in women; the latter can result in pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), infertility, ectopic pregnancy, and chronic pelvic pain. Invasive infections with Neisseria gonorrhoeae, including disseminated gonococcal infection, endocarditis, and meningitis, are uncommon but can result in serious morbidity.
