Overview


What is Chlamydia Trachomatis IgM?

Chlamydia trachomatis IgM test methodology is Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) which has the ability to detect the IgM antibody even after several months of infection. The test involves coating the microwells surface with purified Chlamydia antigen which binds the antibody to itself if present in the diluted serum sample. The colour generated after washing off the excess enzyme substrate gives the actual result of the test.


Why is Chlamydia Trachomatis IgM done?

It is important to get the chlamydia test done because it causes a severe sexually transmitted disease which infects the rectum, urethra or the cervix and can also spread to the throat if there was an oral sex thereby causing abnormal discharge from penis and vagina, itching and burning sensation while urinating and pain while intercourse.


Interpreting Chlamydia Trachomatis IgM results
