STD Diagnostics

Molecular diagnostics

The molecular diagnostics department of Eurofins | NMDL-LCPL focuses on the detection of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). All examinations in this area are based on the PCR technique (polymerase chain reaction).

What does the PCR technique entail?

The great advantage of diagnostics with the aid of PCR over conventional methods is that no bacteria have to be cultured. For example, the culture techniques for detecting Neisseria gonorrhoeae (gonococci) or Chlamydia trachomatis pose high requirements on the material and the culture techniques. It regularly goes wrong, as a result of which the microorganisms that were present can no longer be detected.
