Syphilis is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) that can have very serious complications when left untreated. Without treatment, syphilis can severely change the heart, brain or other organs, and can be life-threatening. Syphilis can also be passed from mothers to unborn children.
Automated syphilis testing increases staff productivity and efficiency.
The Siemens Healthineers Syphilis assay is a treponemal immunoassay that can be incorporated into the CDC-recommended Reverse Sequence Syphilis Screening algorithm.
Using a Reverse Syphilis Sequence Screening algorithm can increase reimbursement by approximately $1,000 per 100 patients.
