Detect Neisseria gonorrhoeae and ciprofloxacin susceptibility markers
Dual N. gonorrhoeae targets (opa & porA), gyrA S91F mutant, & gyrA S91 wildtype in a single-well multiplex qPCR test
Antibiotic resistance in gonorrhoea infections is a global concern. There are limited effective treatment options and novel antibiotics are not readily available. Smarter and more directed use of antibiotics can be achieved through Resistance Guided Therapy.
Tested on hundreds of clinical samples, ResistancePlus® GC demonstrates excellent sensitivity and specificity.
Streamline your workflow and increase productivity for rapid, routine diagnostics. Full automation options including sample and qPCR set-up, through to validated software solutions for automated result calling and simple data processing.
SpeeDx analysis software included in contract pricing is license free and installed on a high security and GDPR compliant platform:
Increase capacity of your existing qPCR instrumentation through universal run conditions compatible with all ResistancePlus® products.
Demonstrated clinical performance – for more detail please see the ResistancePlus® GC Instructions for Use.
|Performance of ResistancePlus® GC|
|GC detection||gyrA S91F Detection|
ResistancePlus® GC simultaneously detects the bacterium Neisseria gonorrhoeae (GC) and the gyrA S91 (wild type) or gyrA S91F (mutant) markers that are associated with susceptibility or resistance to the fluoroquinolone antibiotic, ciprofloxacin.
Single well: N. gonorrhoeae (Opa), N. gonorrhoeae (PorA), Ciprofloxacin resistance, Ciprofloxacin susceptibility, Internal control

Evaluation of the molecular detection of ciprofloxacin resistance in Neisseria gonorrhoeae by the ResistancePlus® assay (SpeeDx)
Samples were selected from a range of sites with corresponding cultures isolated from the same patient episode. The ResistancePlus® GC assay displayed high sensitivity for N. gonorrhoeae detection (98.5%) and gyrA detection (97.1%). There was high agreement (98.9%) between the ResistancePlus® GC assay and culture phenotype.
Reflex detection of ciprofloxacin resistance in Neisseria gonorrhoeae using the SpeeDx ResistancePlus® GC Assay
Of the concordant N. gonorrhoeae – positive samples, (86.8%) possessed gyrA S91F mutation, highly predictive of ciprofloxacin resistance. Authors confirmed Resistance Guided Therapy (RGT) for gonorrhoea may reduce unnecessary use of broad spectrum antibiotics.
From the lab to the clinic: Finding your feet with molecular resistance testing
Drs Winter and Moss share practical learning from their experience of introducing molecular resistance testing for gonorrhoea into a large urban population. They discuss implementation considerations and describe how these systems helped influence treatment decisions. Including examples where molecular resistance testing made a difference in patient management.
