Mycoplasma genitalium PCR

Diagnostic Use

Mycoplasm genitalium is an established cause of sexually transmitted infections and a cause of non-gonococcal urethritis (NGU) in both men and women.

M. genitalium has also been associated with cervicitis and recent studies indicate a role in pelvic inflammatory disease (PID).

The incidence of M. genitalium from a local study of males presenting at sexual health clinic with recurrent urethritis found 16%(9 out of 55) positive rate second only to Chlamydia trachomatis which was 22% (12 out of 55)

A study performed at Canterbury Health Laboratories found the incidence of M. genitalium resistance was 70%
