In 2010, sexually active women aged 14-22 years old recruited at a teen health center or emergency department collected vaginal swabs and used the sample for the OSOM
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.
Hence, the present study was done to evaluate the efficacy of OSOM
Trichomonas Rapid test in diagnosing vaginal trichomoniasis and to compare it with conventional diagnostic methods like wet mount and culture.
Each solution was tested in duplicate by use of the SP hCG Combo Rapid Test (Combo) and the OSOM
hCG Combo Test (OSOM
) as described in Materials and Methods.
But the Bayelsa PDP, speaking through its Publicity Secretary , Osom
Macbere, dismissed the allegations, saying that all party members were carried along before the date of the congress in the state was announced, and at no time did Governor Dickson, influence the process.
Other tests mentioned in the CDC guidelines include the BD ProbeTec T vaginalis Qx Amplified DNA Assay (Becton Dickinson; Franklin Lakes, NJ), the OSOM
Trichomonas RapidTest (Sekisui Diagnostics; Framingham, MA), and the BD Affirm VPIII Microbial Identification Test (Becton Dickinson; Franklin Lakes, NJ), a DNA hybridization probe test.
(5.) Sekisui Diagnostics OSOM
Trichomonas Rapid Test.
Previously, we reported false-negative results generated by the OSOM
human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG)  Combo test (Genzyme Diagnostics) (1) and certain lots of the hCG Cardinal Health Combo SP brand rapid test device (SP hCG rapid test; Cardinal Health) (2) owing to increased concentrations of hCG [beta] core fragment (hCG [beta]cf).
* Expanded diagnostic options will include the OSOM
Trichomonas rapid test (an immunochromatographic capillary flow/dipstick assay) and the Affirm VP III nucleic acid probe test.
Makbere takes a stand by sharing that 'Only the blissfully ignorant would not know the value of what meaningfully engaging in talks can do to healing our wounds as a nation.
Tests of these samples with the OSOM
and ICON devices produced negative results as well, as previously described (1).
