InPouch TV is a self-contained broth media device for the recovery and detection of T. vaginalis from female vaginal samples or male urethra/urine samples. The selective, nutritive media provides presumptive-positive results of one or more live trichomonads in a little over 15 minutes — while inhibiting the growth of other microorganisms, which can interfere with a reliable diagnosis.

Human trichomoniasis is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by the flagellated protozoan Trichomonas vaginalis. It is recognized as one of the most prevalent sexually transmitted infections world-wide, in both males and females. The CDC estimates five million new cases occur in the U.S. annually.

The pouch is designed for user-friendly and convenient early microscopic detection by culture confirmation of T. vaginalis. The pouch consists of a high-barrier, oxygen-resistant, plastic with two V-shaped-chambers connected by a narrow passage that, together, provide a variety of benefits. The pouch allows users to easily inoculate a specimen, immediately observe (wet mount) the specimen, store and/or transport (optional) before transfer to the lab for incubation and recording.
