The Need

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Trichomonas vaginalis (TV) is the most prevalent nonviral sexually transmitted infection in the United States, affecting an estimated 2.3M women and 1.4M men.1,2

TV is associated with:

  • Two to threefold increased risk for HIV acquisition1 
  • Preterm birth and other adverse pregnancy outcomes in women1
  • Urethritis, epididymitis, or prostatitis in men1
  • NAAT (nucleic acid amplification testing) is recommended by the CDC and is often 3 to 5 times more sensitive than wet mount microscopy.1

The Solution

Xpert TV is the only FDA-cleared NAAT test for Trichomonas vaginalis testing in female and male specimens. Xpert TV supports same-day patient consultation and treatment by physicians.

On-demand TV testing — a next generation solution:

  • The first NAAT to deliver TV results for male urine specimens
  • FDA-cleared for both symptomatic and asymptomatic patients
  • Delivers positive results in as soon as 40 minutes*
  • Sample adequacy control to confirm presence of human DNA
  • Available as part of a broad menu, including CT/NG and GBS, all on the same platform

* With EAT (Early Assay Termination), for positive results.

The Impact

  • Deliver high sensitivity NAAT results for accurate diagnosis in both men and women
  • Deliver same day results to clinicians in as soon as 40 minutes*
  • Instrument consolidation lowers operating costs while increasing laboratory service

* With EAT (Early Assay Termination), for positive results.
