Since our inception, we at Biomed, have dedicated ourselves to educating healthcare providers around the world regarding the serious health threat that Trichomonas Vaginalis presents to women. Low birth rate, increased risk of HIV transmission, as well as potential co-infections of high-risk HPV strains, are just a few of the many risks if Trich is untreated.
In honor of International Women's Day, Biomed is again bringing this health threat into focus. Globally, there are 174 million people infected with this very treatable infection. Despite being treatable with oral antibiotics, however, lack of testing and socioeconomic viewpoints regarding sexually transmitted infections prevent many women in remote and rural areas from receiving proper diagnosis.
Having closely collaborated with the CDC and WHO, Biomed’s Trich test, InPouch TV, has become the Gold Standard culture-media diagnostic for T. vaginalis due to its low cost, highly specific media, and ability to be used in rural environments and remote locations with no immediate proximity to healthcare facilities.
We take great care in the engineering, manufacturing, and testing of our products. Because of this dedication, Biomed is fully certified to ISO 13485:2016, a comprehensive standard of quality management systems for Medical Device Manufacturers.
