We are using the BDProveTec ET C. trachomatic and N. gonorrhoeae Amplified DNA Assay. The package insert has the following:
The BDProbeTec ET Chlamydia trachomatis (CT) and Neisseria gonorrhoeae (GC) Amplified DNA Assays, when tested with the BDProbeTec ET System, use Strand Displacement Amplification (SDA) technology for the direct, qualitative detection of Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae DNA in endocervical swabs, male urethral swabs, and in female and male urine specimens as evidence of infection with C. trachomatis, N. gonorrhoeae, or of co-infection with both C. trachomatis and N. gonorrhoeae.
