N. gonorrhoeae (Neisseria Gonorrhoeae )
Rapid CDIATM N. gonorrhoeae kits are intended for the detection of gonorrhoeae by detecting gonorrhoea antigen.
Neisseria gonorrhoeae infections are acquired by sexual contact and usually affect the mucous membranes of the urethra in males and the endocervix and urethra in females, although the infection may disseminate to a variety of tissues. The pathogenic mechanism involves the attachment of the bacterium to nonciliated epithelial cells via pili and the production of lipopolysaccharide endotoxin. In the vocabulary of the public health and medical microbiologist, N. gonorrhoeae is often referred to as the “gonococcus”.
