Presto CT/NG PCR assay

The Awarded combined qualitative real time Presto CT/NG PCR assay of Goffin Molecular Technologies is the fastest, most innovative, technically most reliable and robust detection method for sexually transmitted diseases in all human clinical sample materials.

Our IVD-CE certified multiplex rapid combined real-time PCR assay detects all Chlamydia trachomatis  serovars and Neisseria gonorrhoeae within 45 minutes and is up to almost 100 times (!) more sensitive compared to existing methods!


 With the unique patented IAC you have complete control during all isolation, amplification inhibition and PCR processes. The Presto CT/NG PCR assay combines real time PCR with  an Isolation Amplification Control, which monitors both inhibition and nucleic acid extraction of clinical samples, generating the best of two worlds.

The Presto CT/NG PCR test  provides this combination and warrants a correct interpretation, omitting false negative and producing true positive signals with high sensitivity and specificity. The real time format of the kit reduces the risk of contamination by amplicons. In addition, the Chlamydia trachomatis Swedish variant strain will be succesfully detected.

Finally, another unique feature is introduced in the Presto CT/NG assay. To circumvent negative results in double infections with one prominent (highly positive) bacterium, CT and NG selectors are available. These selectors will allow detection of low load of one target in combination with high load of the other target in the same sample.
