Test Details

Clue cell exam; Trichomonas exam; yeast exam; reflex to culture if negative for Trichomonas

Use

Presumptive diagnosis of Trichomonas vaginalis infection

Methodology

Microscopic evaluation with reflex to culture if negative

Reference Interval

Specimen Requirements

Specimen

Vaginal swab, sedimented first-void male urine, semen, prostatic fluid, or male urethral swab

Volume

Swab or one to two drops of fluid or sedimented urine

Container

InPouch™ TV transported at room temperature (up to 48 hours)

Collection

Specimens are inoculated directly into the culture media with the exception of urine specimens which are first centrifuged at 500xg and the sediment used for inocula. Collect specimens using a cotton swab. To avoid leakage, first move the medium at the top of the InPouch™ downward to the middle of the upper chamber. Tear off plastic above the white closure. In order to admit the swab, open the InPouch™ by pulling the closure tape's middle tabs apart. Insert swab into upper chamber medium of the InPouch™ TV and elute specimen by rubbing swab between the InPouch™ TV walls. Remove the swab and discard. Liquid specimens are added directly to the upper chamber medium of the InPouch™ TV. When specimen inoculation is completed, squeeze the top of the InPouch™ closed, then roll down three rolls and fold tabs over. Keep InPouch™ in an upright position.

Storage Instructions

Maintain specimen at room temperature for up to 48 hours; if held longer than 48 hours, incubation at 37°C is required. Do not refrigerate.

Causes for Rejection

Specimen received in the laboratory after 48 hours without incubation; expired product; specimen refrigerated; any transport except InPouch™ TV

Clinical Information

Special Instructions

Store uninoculated InPouch™ TV test kits at room temperature. If reflex testing is performed, additional charge(s)/CPT code(s) will apply.
