InPouch® TF Feline

A highly selective culture media device for the detection of Tritrichomonas foetus.. InPouch TF is a cost-effective, easy to use, broth media device for combined collection, incubation, and detection. 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. Its selective, nutritive media provides presumptive-positive results of one or more live trichomonads in a little over 15 minutes. No plating, or wet mount slide preparation are needed. Dramatically reduces your workload and costs by placing InPouch directly on the microscope stage for low power (100x) observation.
