Advantages of Testing in our Central Florida / Orlando Laboratory

The advantages of lab-based testing for Gonorrhea and Chlamydia include:

  1. High Accuracy and Sensitivity: Lab-based tests, particularly Nucleic Acid Amplification Tests (NAATs), are highly sensitive and accurate, ensuring reliable detection of these infections.
  2. Early Detection: These tests can detect Gonorrhea and Chlamydia infections early, often before symptoms appear, allowing for prompt treatment.
  3. Reduction in Complications: Early and accurate detection reduces the risk of complications associated with untreated Gonorrhea and Chlamydia, such as pelvic inflammatory disease, infertility, and increased risk of HIV transmission.
  4. Confirmation of Diagnosis: Lab tests provide a definitive diagnosis, which is essential for appropriate treatment and management of sexual health.
  5. Testing of Multiple Sites: Lab-based testing can be performed on samples from various sites (e.g., urine, genital swabs), which is important since Gonorrhea and Chlamydia can infect multiple areas of the body.
  6. Prevention of Spread: Early detection and treatment prevent the further spread of these sexually transmitted infections (STIs) to sexual partners.
  7. Cost-Effective in Long Term: By preventing complications and the spread of infection, these tests are cost-effective in the long term, despite the initial investment.
  8. Suitable for Asymptomatic Patients: Many people with Gonorrhea and Chlamydia are asymptomatic. Lab-based testing is crucial for identifying infections in these individuals.
  9. Compliance with Guidelines: These tests align with public health guidelines, which often recommend NAAT for the diagnosis of STIs due to their high accuracy.
  10. Confidentiality and Privacy: Lab testing ensures patient confidentiality and privacy, which is particularly important for STI testing.

In summary, lab-based testing for Gonorrhea and Chlamydia offers reliable, early, and sensitive diagnosis, aiding in effective treatment and control of these common sexually transmitted infections
