Testing for Sexually Transmitted Infections
The Atlas Genetics io® range of tests for STIs will provide sexual health clinicians with an actionable test result whilst the patient is still present at the clinic. This would allow for a new, rapid gonorrhoea or chlamydia test, creating a ‘test and treat’ solution for these and other STIs.
The benefits this has on the sexual health of the local community, specifically young people, are great. Having immediate and appropriate treatment without reliance on microscopy or presumptive treatment will help reduce transmission of STIs, eliminating the need for patient tracking, loss to treatment, and unnecessary costs associated with patient follow-up.
