Trichomonas vaginalis is an anaerobic flagellated protozoan. The parasitic microorganism is the causative agent of trichomoniasis, and is the most common pathogenic protozoan infection of humans in industrialized countries. Trichomonas vaginalis is sexually transmitted via skin-to-skin contact with an infected individual. Infection rates between men and women are the same with women showing symptoms while infections in men are usually asymptomatic. Complications may also occur in women (preterm delivery, low birth weight, and increased mortality as well as predisposing to HIV infection) and men (symptomatic urethritis and prostatitis).
S-DiaTVTM is a trusted and easy-to-use molecular diagnostic CE-IVD kit designed to qualitatively detect Trichomonas vaginalis in biological samples (urine and swabs) collected from patients showing symptoms related to this pathogen using real-time PCR.
