Atlas First In Market With 30-Minute POC Molecular Test For Chlamydia
This article was originally published in Clinica
Atlas Genetics is bringing to market the first point-of-care molecular diagnostic test for chlamydia that can deliver results in 30 minutes. The rapid turnaround time will hopefully reduce the number of patients who do not go back to retrieve their results and consequently not get the necessary treatment should they have the sexually transmitted infection (STI).
