VAGINITIS PANEL BY MULTIPLEX PCR METHOD OF CHOICE FOR DETECTION OF TRICHOMONAS VAGINALIS

 
The NorDx vaginitis panel is a PCR-based test used for the detection and identification of the most common vaginal pathogens: Trichomonas vaginalis, Gardnerella vaginalis, Candida glabrata, Candida albicans and can substantiate a cytology or wet mount diagnosis.  For added convenience, this and multiple other women's health testing can be performed on a single specimen. The vaginitis panel can be ordered on a Cobas PCR swab concurrently with Chlamydia and Gonorrhea testing and can also be ordered off the ThinPrep Pap Test Vial.
 
In accordance with 2015 CDC guidelines1 highly sensitive molecular testing should be utilized, as a substitute for traditional microbiology tests, for vaginal pathogens.   
 
Use test code VAGPN for Vaginitis Panel collected on PCR swab
Use test code VGTHN for Vaginitis Panel collected in a ThinPrep Pap Test Vial with a concurrent pap.
