Aids in the diagnosis of vulvovaginal candidiasis and trichomoniasis by detection of Trichomonas vaginalis, Candida glabrata, and other Candida species (C. albicans, C. parapsilosis, C. dubliniensis, and C. tropicalis). Does not differentiate among organisms in the Candida species group.
For additional STI testing, use Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae by TMA (0060241).
