OSOM Trichomonas Rapid - Immunochromatography for Trichomonas Vaginalis antigen detection
Performed at authorized locations by point of care operators. This test assay is intended for the qualitative detection of Trichomonas vaginalis antigens from vaginal swabs. This test is intended for use in patients with symptoms of vaginosis/vaginitis or suspected exposure to the Trichomonas pathogen. Trichomonas infection is the most common, non-viral sexually transmitted disease worldwide. Effective diagnosis and treatment of the Trichomonas infections have been shown to eliminate symptoms.
•A negative result may occur due to low antigen concentrations below the sensitivity of the test kit.
•This test is valid only for vaginal swab specimens or saline solution from wet mount of a vaginal swab.
•This test does not differentiate between viable and non-viable organisms, nor between carriers and those that have an acute infection.
•Samples contaminated with iodine or vaginal lubricant may interfere with this test.
Using a female urogenital swab collect sample from the vagina, cervix and/endocervix.
