Trichomonas vaginalis

T. vaginalis is a parasitic protozoan flagellate, generally restricted to the genitourinary tract by the host's immune system and is the etiological agent of human trichomoniasis.

In women symptoms of infection include vaginal  secretion that is scanty and mixed with mucus; malodorous discharge that is frothy, yellow or green, mycopurulent and copious. Complications may result in cervical erosion, cervical cancer, infertility, adnexitis, pyosalpinx and endometritis. Premature rupture of the placental membranes can occur in pregnant women, resulting in premature birth and low-birth weight. In men is the prevalence lower and infection is often asymptomatic. Infection in men can be present in the prostate, seminal vesicles and epididymis. Complications are rare, but can potentially lead to genitourinary inflammation disease, sterility, scanty, clear to mucopurulent discharge, dysuria, non-gonococcal urethritis, prostatitis and urethral disease.

T. vaginalis PCR kits are in vitro qualitative amplification tests built for fast and accurate detection of the pathogen in the clinical material. Kits contain Internal Control that allows detection of DNA extraction efficiency as well as amplification process.

For detection, 2 channels - FAM/Green and JOE/Yellow/HEX are needed.
