Neisseria gonorrhoeae is an STD that is caused by a bacterium. This STD can cause an infection in the urethra, vagina, cervix, anus and/or throat. If an infection with Neisseria gonorrhoeae is suspected, Eurofins | NMDL-LCPL can confirm or exclude this for you. Due to its high sensitivity and high specificity, PCR is the best choice for detecting Neisseria gonorrhoeae.
