InPouch® TV - Diagnostic test for Trichomonas Vaginalis   (T. Vaginalis)Biomed InPouch TV culture media for trichomonas vaginalis culture diagnostics


InPouch® TV - Diagnostic test for Trichomonas Vaginalis (T. Vaginalis)

Highly selective, accurate identification of Trichomonas vaginalis, in a cost-effective, easy to use, broth media device — no lab equiptment except a microscope needed.  Considered the Gold Standard for over 10 years, InPouch is widely used in STI clinics, out-patient clinics, hospitals and remote, field-based healthcare.  Recommended as a parallel test with other POC rapid tests, to prevent false negatives. 

 Easy to use — simply swab and inoculate the fluid within InPouch, at the point-of-care. The selective, nutritive media provides positive results of one or more live trichomonads viewable in a little over 15 minutes.

No plating, wet mount slide preparation, no microbiology lab or expensive equipment needed. InPouch dramatically reduces your workload and lab costs and is placed directly on the microscope stage for low power (100x) observation.


Product Principal
  • Combine collection, culture, result and microscopic observation in one IVD device.  
  • Highly selective prepared media in a device designed for in-vitro specimen transport and incubation.
  • Rapid presumptive-positive diagnosis without re-plating.  Intray can be placed directly on microscope stage
  • Recommended as a parallel test with other POC rapid tests.   The InPouch TV will reveal false negatives common with rapid or strip tests.
Simple Convenience
  • InPouch is designed for specimen collection / inoculation at point-of-care
  • Saves time, material cost and waste, reducing exposure to collected sample
  • Place directly on the microscope tray for observation
  • Selectively produces distinctive colony growth with typical identifiable morphology
Accurate Detection

Specially formulated medium is selective for positive growth of resistant strains of T. vaginalis, while inhibiting fungi and bacteria.
