InPouch TF is a self-contained broth media device for the detection of Tritrichomonas foetus from bovine preputial or vaginal samples. The proprietary medium is selective for the transport and growth of T. foetus, and is widely known as the Gold Standard media for this STI. InPouch TF increases specificity by inhibiting the growth of yeasts, molds, bacteria and other micro-flora. Simply swab and inoculate the fluid within InPouch at the point-of-care.
Bovine trichomonosis is a venereal disease transmitted by the protozoan parasite T. foetus. The primary pathological manifestation of this infection is early embryonic death or abortion in impregnated cows. Cows show few other symptoms of infection, while bulls are asymptomatic. InPouch TF is designed to facilitate and simplify the detection of T. foetus as the organism is infrequently found in direct microscopic examination of clinical specimens, and serological methods of diagnosis are not reliable.
TF medium is known to be effective in preserving T. foetus, T. suis, T. galliniae and P. hominis.
