Chlamydia trachomatis is an STD which can be easily contracted by a patient. The mucous membranes of the urethra, the anus, the throat and/or cervix are infected by this bacterium. Initially, Chlamydia trachomatis causes few complaints, so that the STD often goes unnoticed. Eurofins | NMDL-LCPL can give you a definite answer when this genital infection is suspected. Due to its high sensitivity and specificity, PCR is the best choice for detecting Chlamydia trachomatis.
