Trichomonas vaginalis

Duplicα RealTime  Next Trichomonas vaginalis Kit is an in vitro diagnostic test for the detection of Trichomonas vaginalis (TV), by Real-Time PCR

Trichomonas vaginalis (TV) is a protozoan parasite that commonly infects the genital tract of men and women. It is now considered to be the most common curable Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) agent. Although up to 70% of infected individuals are asymptomatic, infections may be associated with vaginitis, urethritis, and cervicitis in women, and urethritis and prostatitis in men. Patients that are infected with Trichomonas vaginalis have an increased risk of acquiring other sexually transmitted infections such as HIV, while infections in pregnant women are associated with premature labor, low-birth-weight offspring, premature rupture of membranes, and post-hysterectomy/post-abortion infection. Symptoms of Trichomonas vaginalis overlap considerably with other sexually transmitted infections, and therefore laboratory diagnosis is required for definitive diagnosis
