Detect Mycoplasma genitalium and macrolide resistance markers
MgPa for M. genitalium detection, plus five 23S rRNA mutations (A2058G, A2059G, A2059C, A2058T, A2058C) in a single-well multiplex qPCR test
Resistance to the macrolide treatment (Azithromycin) is of growing concern when managing M. genitalium (Mgen) infections. Guidelines around the world now call for the practice of Resistance Guided Therapy to guide appropriate treatment decisions, reduce potential for spreading infection among vulnerable populations, and support antibiotic stewardship.
Tested on thousands of clinical samples, ResistancePlus® MG demonstrates excellent sensitivity and specificity.
Streamline your workflow and increase productivity for rapid, routine diagnostics. Full automation options include sample and qPCR set-up, through to validated software solutions for automated result calling and simple data processing.
SpeeDx analysis software is included in contract pricing, is license free, and installed on a high security and GDPR compliant platform. Designed to support the IVD laboratory environment, features include:
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® MG Instructions for Use.

Resistance-guided Antimicrobial Therapy Using Doxycycline-Moxifloxacin and doxycycline-2.5g Azithromycin for the Treatment of Mycoplasma Genitalium Infection: Efficacy and Tolerability
Used ResistancePlus® MG to support Resistance Guided Therapy for Mgen infections, curing 92% and 95% of macrolide-resistant and macrolide-susceptible infections. Providing an evidence-base for current UK, Australian and European guidelines for the treatment of Mgen.
Prevalence of Mycoplasma genitalium Infection in Women With Bacterial Vaginosis
Used ResistancePlus® MG to investigate over 1500 symptomatic vaginitis patients. Mgen infection was more prevalent in women with bacterial vaginosis (BV) (7.0% Mgen positive) compared with non-BV vaginitis (3.6% Mgen positive). Macrolide resistance mediating mutations observed in over 37% of Mgen positive samples.
Mycoplasma genitalium – Management in the Era of Escalating Antimicrobial Resistance
Results shared from the flagship Resistance Guided Therapy study demonstrating significant increases in cure rate of Mgen infections from less than 60% to over 92% using ResistancePlus® MG to identify macrolide sensitive and resistance infections to inform patient treatment.
