A self-contained broth media device for the recovery and detection of T. vaginalis

InPouch TV is a self-contained broth media device for the recovery and detection of T. vaginalis from female vaginal samples or male urethra/urine samples. The selective, nutritive media provides presumptive-positive results of one or more live trichomonads under the microscope immediately after inoculation of specimen — while inhibiting the growth of other microorganisms, which can interfere with a reliable diagnosis.

Human trichomoniasis is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by the flagellated protozoan Trichomonas vaginalis. It is recognized as one of the most prevalent sexually transmitted infections world-wide, in both males and females. The CDC estimates five million new cases occur in the U.S. annually.

InPouch is designed for user-friendly and convenient early microscopic detection by culture confirmation of T. vaginalis. InPouch consists of a high-barrier, oxygen-resistant, plastic with two V-shaped-chambers connected by a narrow passage that, together, provide a variety of benefits — and allows users to easily inoculate a specimen, immediately observe (wet mount) the specimen, store and/or transport (optional) before transferring to the lab for incubation and recording.

Specifications

Product Principle
  • InPouch design enables collection, culture, and microscopic observation.  
  • Highly selective, culture media detection of Trichomonas vaginalis, in a cost-effective, easy to use, broth media device 
  • No plating or wet mount slide preparation needed — place directly on the microscope stage for low power (100x) observation.
Simple Convenience
  • InPouch is designed for specimen collection / inoculation at point-of-care
  • Saves time, material cost and waste, reducing exposure to collected sample
  • Place directly on the microscope tray for observation
  • Selectively allows for growth and observation for trichomonads
Accurate Detection

Specially formulated medium is selective for positive growth of resistant strains of T. vaginalis, while inhibiting fungi and bacteria.

Time to Result

Presumptive positive results when trichomonads are observed microscopically.  If negative upon initial observation, incubate at 37°C and examine every 24 hours for 5 days.

Storage

12 Months shelf life from the date of manufacture. Inoculated Pouches can be kept at room temperature for up to 48 hours (18-25°C), before incubation at 37°C is required
