InPouch™ TV (Trichomonas Vaginalis)

Trichomonas Vaginalis

InPouch™ TV is a highly specific and sensitive device allowing for simultaneous growth and observation of Trichomonas vaginalis, the parasite responsible for the STI Trichomoniasis. The InPouch™ TV is known as “The Gold Standard” diagnostic for this STI. The proprietary medium of the InPouch™ TV is selective for the transport and growth of T. vaginalis and increases specificity by inhibiting the growth of yeasts, mold, bacteria, and other commensal micro flora. No slide preparation is required to view T. vaginalis in the InPouch™
