Evaluation of the OSOM Trichomonas Rapid Test versus Wet Preparation Examination for Detection of Trichomonas vaginalis Vaginitis in Specimens from Women with a Low Prevalence of Infection

L. Campbell, V. Woods, T. Lloyd, S. Elsayed and D. L. Church    

Abstract: The OSOM Trichomonas rapid test (OSOM Trich) was compared to the wet preparation examination (WP) for the detection of Trichomonas vaginalis vaginitis in women with a low prevalence of infection. A total of 19/1,009 (2%) women had T. vaginalis infection. OSOM Trich had very good performance, with sensitivity, specificity, efficiency, positive predictive value, and negative predictive value of 94.7, 100, 99.9, 100, and 99.9%, respectively. The implementation of OSOM Trich would decrease labor costs.
