Klebsiella pneumoniae have many capsule types, many of which do not cause venereal disease. However, types 1, 2 and 5 may be sexually transmitted, so when K. pneumoniae is identified, tests to determine the capsule type present must be undertaken.
We offer a qPCR assay for the detection of Klebsiella pneumoniae capsule types 1, 2 and 5.
