The OSOM® Trichomonas Rapid Test is intended for the qualitative detection of Trichomonas vaginalis
(Trichomonas) antigens from vaginal swabs or from the saline solution prepared when making wet
mounts from vaginal swabs. This test is intended for use in patients with symptoms of vaginosis/vaginitis
or suspected exposure to the Trichomonas pathogen.

Easy-to-Run: Dipstick simple, one reagent

Accurate: 95% agreement against Composite Reference Standard (culture and wet mount). Unaffected by other common infections

Fast: Results in approximately10 minutes

Flexible: Requires minimal training and lab personnel

Objective: Provides easy-to-read two color results

Room Temperature Storage: 16 month shelf life

Trichomonas infection is responsible for the most common, non-viral sexually transmitted disease
(vaginitis or trichomoniasis) worldwide. Trichomoniasis is a significant cause of morbidity among all
infected patients. Effective diagnosis and treatment of Trichomonas infections have been shown
to eliminate symptoms. Conventional identification procedures for Trichomonas from vaginal swabs
or vaginal washes involve the isolation and subsequent identification of viable pathogens by wet
mount microscopy or by culture, a process that can take 24120 hours. Wet mount microscopy
has a reported sensitivity of 58% versus culture. The OSOM® Trichomonas Rapid Test is an
immunochromatographic assay that detects pathogen antigens directly from vaginal swabs.
Results are rapid, occurring within approximately 10 minutes.
