CellSwab is a single swab test for Vaginitis, Candida and Trichomoniasis to help provide your patient with a plan for a successful treatment path.
The most common causes of vaginitis are:
CellSwab tests for imbalances and presence of microorganisms through Semi-Quantitative detection of Gardnerella Vaginalis and broad range Lactobacillus.
It is the most prevalent non-viral STD with approximately 3.7 million cases in the US. (Ref.2)
The CDC recommends TV detection with NAAT testing. NAAT is highly sensitive, and detects 3 to 5 times more infections than wet mount (a method with ~50% sensitivity). (Ref.3)
Obtain an accurate diagnosis for chlamydia or gonorrhea for your patient with one collection.
Provide your patient with the proper treatment options for them and their sexual partner.
