The Need

Vaginitis is a leading cause of clinic visits by women, with more than 10 million per year in the United States.1 Limitations with traditional test methods contribute to poor diagnosis, inappropriate treatment, and persistent symptoms.2 High-performing PCR tests are available for large batch analyzers but have limited practical use for clinicians due to a lag in reportable results, making appropriate same day treatment a challenge.3
Challenges remain:
  • Detection and differentiation of bacterial vaginosis (BV), vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC), and trichomoniasis (TV), which all present with similar symptoms
  • Mixed and co-infections of BV, VVC, and TV are common, further complicating diagnosis and the guidance of appropriate treatment4,5
  • Insights for effective triage and patient management
  • Testing options that offer accurate and objective test results to drive timely and appropriate treatment for improved patient management

The Solution

The Xpert® Xpress MVP test is a new, FDA cleared, on-demand PCR test to aid in the diagnosis of vaginal infections in symptomatic women within an hour. This test introduces a BV flora specific algorithm for bacterial vaginosis combined with the detection of Candida species (Candida group and Candida glabrata/krusei) and Trichomonas vaginalis, from a single sample on Cepheid's easy-to-use GeneXpert® systems.
On-demand molecular testing — an ideal solution:
  • Actionable diagnostic aid for bacterial vaginosis, vulvovaginal candidiasis, and trichomoniasis within 60 minutes, including potential co-infections
  • On-demand results for 4 separate callouts: bacterial vaginosis, Candida group,* C. glabrata/krusei, and T. vaginalis from a single sample collection
  • Implementing easy-to-use testing with GeneXpert technology

The Impact

The Xpert Xpress MVP test, performed on Cepheid's GeneXpert systems, delivers an accurate, simple, and flexible solution for uncomplicating the diagnosis of vaginitis.
It delivers single-test confidence aiding clinicians in diagnosing three distinct conditions from one sample.
  • Easy to use multiplex, real-time PCR panel test
  • Less than 1 minute hands-on-time and objective PCR results within 60 minutes
  • Detect mixed and diverse vaginal conditions from one sample
  • Designed to enable appropriate treatment the first time
