BD Diagnostics, a segment of BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company), announced today the European launch of the BD ProbeTec™ Trichomonas vaginalis Qx Amplified DNA Assay for the direct qualitative detection of T. vaginalis DNA in female urine specimens to aid in the diagnosis of trichomoniasis on the BD Viper™ System. This assay has been CE-marked to the In Vitro Diagnostic Directive (98/79/EC).

Trichomoniasis is the most common curable sexually transmitted infection (STI). Worldwide, more than 180 million cases are estimated to occur annually. Genital inflammation caused by trichomoniasis can increase a woman’s susceptibility to HIV infection. In HIV-infected women, trichomoniasis may increase the likelihood of HIV transmission to sex partners. Furthermore, trichomoniasis is often asymptomatic. For these reasons, experts recommend screening for T. vaginalisin women considered to be at high risk for infection (i.e., women who have new or multiple partners, have a history of STIs, exchange sex for payment, or use injection drugs).

“The global prevalence of trichomoniasis is on the rise and there are more asymptomatic cases than previously thought,” said Chris Demiris, Worldwide Group Marketing Manager, BD Diagnostics - Women’s Health and Cancer. “The availability of an automated platform is especially important as clinical and public health communities embrace the need for a test that provides timely and accurate diagnosis of trichomoniasis when screening high-risk populations.”

The BD ProbeTec Trichomonas vaginalis Qx Amplified DNA Assay is designed for use with the BD Viper System. Automated DNA extraction and simultaneous amplification and detection maximize laboratory efficiency and quality of results. Compared to wet mount microscopy and culture, the BD ProbeTec Trichomonas vaginalis Qx assay reduces human intervention and associated variables and improves speed to results. The BD Viper System allows laboratories to test other samples for chlamydia, gonorrhea and herpes on the same automated platform.
