Aptima® CV/TV assay
Detect Causes of Infectious Vaginitis
25% of Infectious vaginitis is caused by vulvovaginal candidiasis and 15% by trichomoniasis1. The Aptima CV/TV assay is a Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAAT) that helps to detect one of the most common causes of infectious vaginitis: Candida vaginitis (CV) and trichomoniasis (TV). Targets include the Candida species group (C. albicans, C. tropicalis, C. parapsilosis, C. dubliniensis), Candida glabrata and Trichomonas vaginalis.2
