25 Apr 2014

Roche is pleased to announce the launch of the Elecsys® Syphilis test. The new Elecsys assay enables the detection of total antibodies to T. pallidum (detection of IgG & IgM antibodies against TpN15, TpN17 & TpN47) and complements the Mediace® Rapid Plasma Reagin (RPR) and T. pallidum Latex Agglutination® (TPLA) Roche assays, allowing reliable detection of infection and treatment monitoring for syphilis.

The Elecsys Syphilis assay demonstrates 100% sensitivity and 99.88% specificity with perfect discrimination of results eliminating the need for a grey zone and delivering confidence in all stages of treponemal infection.

For over 25 years Roche has invested in the research and development of serology analysers and assays so that, today, it offers one of the most comprehensive infectious diseases assay portfolios available on a single automated platform.
