InPouch™ TF Bovine (Trichomonas foetus Bovine)
Biomed’s InPouch™ TF test allows for simultaneous growth and observation of Tritrichomonas foetus, the parasite responsible for the sexually transmitted infection (STI) trichomoniasis in cattle. As the first, most robust and economical diagnostic designed specifically for bovine trichomoniasis, InPouch™ TF is known as “The Gold Standard” diagnostic for this STI. The proprietary medium of the InPouch™ TF is selective for the transport and growth of Tritrichomonas and increases specificity by inhibiting the growth of yeasts, mold, and bacteria.
