Easy immunoassay for Neisseria gonorrhoeae


BioConnections' Gonogen is a monoclonal antibody based test for the confirmatory identification of Neisseria gonorrhoeae . The product does not require instrumentation or boiling and is complete in under 15 minutes.

A solubilising buffer strips off the cell wall of the test organisms, exposing the outer membrane proteins which contain the species specific antigens. Monoclonal antibodies tagged with a red metal-sol particle bind specifically to Neisseria gonorrhoeae antigens.

The subsequent antigen/antibody-carrier complex is detected on a filtration device.

When used together with Neiserria PET the recommendation on the CDC website (http:// www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dastlr/gcdir/neident/ngon ) that Neisseria gonorrhoeae be identified by the use of two test methods involving different principles is satisfied.
