Diseases of the male genital tract are the leading cause of male reproductive function impairment. This defines their social and economic significance, especially taking to account current decrease of birthrate.
Obligate pathogens and viruses are considered the main etiologic factors of combined infection and inflammation process. Most frequently recognized pathogens are Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Chlamydia trachomatis, Trichomonas vaginalis, Mycoplasma genitalium, but in the last few years there have been many reported the increased disease-causing role of opportunistic microorganisms: Ureaplasma urealyticum, Ureaplasma parvum, Haemophilus, Candida etc.
Considering the clinical and social significance of the male genital tract diseases, their slight symptoms or asymptomatic clinical course as well as importance of equivalent medical research of both partners having reproductive system impairment, DNA-Technology Company has developed and implemented the unique technology Androflor® that allows diagnosing combined infection and inflammatory disease of male genital tract.
Androflor® REAL-TIME PCR Detection Kit is intended for research and diagnostic applications. It is in vitro Nucleic Acid Test (NAT) – based microorganisms detection products.
Androflor® is designed to detect the total bacterial DNA (total bacterial mass), DNA of the opportunistic and true pathogens in men’s urogenital tract by multiplex Real-Time Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) method.
Androflor® REAL-TIME PCR Detection Kit is used for the study of men’s urogenital tract microbiocenosis, results obtained with the kits can be used for the diagnosis of male urogenital tract inflammatory diseases.
