In brief: Various tests

The easiest and most commonly used tests are nucleic acid amplification tests (naats), which can be performed on urine, rectal swabs, vaginal swabs, and throat swabs.
There are also nucleic acid hybridization tests (dna probes), which use the same specimens. You can also culture the organism directly, which helps if you're worried about antibiotic resistance.
