Mycoplasma genitalium

STD, molecular diagnostics

Mycoplasma genitalium is an infection that can cause inflammation of the urethra. Carriers of this STD have few symptoms, so that the infection often goes unnoticed. Mycoplasma genitalium can be detected by means of PCR in a very sensitive and reproducible manner.

How do you send in the sample?

Examination for Mycoplasma genitalium differs between men and women. For a man the test can be done by sending in a urine sample, and for a woman via a vaginal swab. You fix the swab or urine in the Cobas tube and send it to us by post. You will receive the result within five working days. For STD diagnoses we follow the multidisciplinary guideline of the Nederlandse Vereniging voor Dermatologie en Venereologie (NVDV - Dutch Society for Dermatology and Venereology) and the Nederlandse Vereniging voor Medische Microbiologie (NVMM - Dutch Society for Medical Microbiology).
