Ureaplasma Culture
Culture, Mycoplasma hominis (Genital Specimens)

Clinical Use:

Establish the diagnosis of Ureaplasma urealyticum infection in suspected cases of urethritis and cervicitis

Test Information:

Ureaplasma and Mycoplasma can be isolated from urethral and genital swabs and from urine of sexually active individuals. Sixty percent or more of all women asymptomatically carry U urealyticum in their genital tract. Usual prevalence of these organisms in patients with urethral symptoms also is high; thus, conclusions regarding the etiologic role of an isolate in a given patient are difficult to make. Nevertheless, Ureaplasma urealyticum has been associated with cases of nongonococcal urethritis.

Specimen Type:

Endocervical exudates or scrapings, urethral exudate, urine, endometrial washing or biopsy, fallopian tube, placenta, fetal part, semen; cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), respiratory sources from neonates

Container Type: 

Viral, Chlamydia, or Mycoplasma culture transport provided by LabCorp, or other appropriate transport medium
