VERSANT CT/GC DNA 1.0 Assay (kPCR)CT/GC multiplex detection and the power to do more.

The VERSANT® CT/ GC DNA 1.0 Assay (kPCR)* is a Real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay for detection of Chlamydia trachomatis (CT) and Neisseria gonorrhoeae (GC) in both symptomatic and asymptomatic individuals.

Combined with Siemens’ nucleic acid extraction technology, this assay provides a reliable and sensitive screening method for the identification of individuals infected with these sexually transmitted infections.

Features & Benefits

Consolidate your Viral Load and CT/GC molecular testing on a single automated platform – The VERSANT kPCR Molecular System*

Excellent Assay Performance

  • Increased DNA recovery and reproducibility through proprietary sample extraction technology
  • Internal control (IC) to monitor PCR inhibition reduces risk of false negative results
  • Minimal sample input volume of 250µL facilitates repeat testing

Sample Handling Flexibility

  • Ready and easy-to-use VERSANT Urine Transport Kit (UTK) requires no manual pipetting, centrifugation, or off-line processing steps.
  • Primary sample tubes are used directly on the VERSANT® kPCR Molecular System.
  • Convenient transport and extended storage at room temperature 

System Reliability

  • Uracil-N-glycosylase (UNG) chemical contamination control reduces risk of contamination
  • Accurate liquid delivery with unique TADM (Total Aspiration and Dispense Monitoring) Technology

Workflow Efficiency

  • Multiple testing options with dual detection of both CT and GC, or CT only
  • 188 patient results per shift
  • Universal sample preparation for urine and swab specimens
