New Mycoplasma genitalium Test

On Thursday, September 1, 2022 the Wisconsin State Laboratory of Hygiene (WSLH) will begin testing for Mycoplasma genitalium using the Aptima Transcription-Mediated Amplification (TMA) assay. This assay uses nucleic acid probes and TMA for the qualitative detection of ribosomal RNA (rRNA) to aid in the diagnosis of M. genitalium infection. The M. genitalium assay uses the same Aptima collection kits currently used for CT/GC testing and a single specimen can be used for multiple tests. M. genitalium testing is available for patients 14 years and older.
