Biomed Diagnostics and Somagen Diagnostics launch a unique partnership

Medford, Oregon.  November 1, 2018 - Biomed Diagnostics and Somagen Diagnostics begin a dynamic, exclusive partnership to make the revolutionary diagnostic InTray® and InPouch® culture devices available throughout Canada.

Biomed Diagnostics manufactures microbiology diagnostic test kits that save money and time and reduce sample exposure and contamination. Recognized worldwide are Biomed’s InPouch™ and InTray™ devices, which combine sample collection, culture, and transport into a single platform.

Biomed Diagnostics is the pioneer of InPouch® for Trichomonas vaginalis, which has become the Gold Standard for Trich testing in the U.S.     Trichomoniasis is the most common Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) in the world.  This pathogenic parasitic infection is now linked to increased rates of HIV transmission and increased incidents of cervical and prostate cancer. Trichomoniasis poses a threat to unborn children and is explicitly linked to premature delivery and low birth weight. BioMed’s easy to use and interpret InPouch® TV saves time, materials, labor, and provides quick results.

The company maintains patents for its packaging systems, as well as possesses proprietary formulas for a variety of culture diagnostic devices.
