Several methods are available for the detection of C. trachomatis in clinical specimens, including giemsa staining of tissue, fluorescent antibody staining, culture, and nucleic acid detection. Although culture is very specific, it lacks sensitivity, so recommendations have been put forth to include multiple tests in assisting with a diagnosis of infection, including tests such as the CT/NG APTIMA® TMA Assay.
