Abbott Receives FDA Clearance for Molecular Diagnostic Test for Detection of Chlamydia and Gonorrhea Infections

Abbott received independent 510(k) clearances for both the Abbott RealTime Chlamydia trachomatis/Neisseria gonorrhoeae (CT/NG) assay and the Abbott m2000 System.  They are required to be used together as a system for the detection of CT/NG from multiple specimen types including urine, urethral, vaginal and endocervical swabs.  Also cleared was the Abbott multi-Collect Specimen Collection Kit, a unique device for collection and room-temperature transportation of multiple samples, including urine samples and endocervical, vaginal and male urethral swab specimens, in one collection device.
