The Aptima BV Assay is an in vitro nucleic acid amplification test that utilizes real time transcription mediated amplification (TMA) for the qualitative detection of RNA from bacteria associated with bacterial vaginosis (BV), including Lactobacillus (L.gasseri, L. crispatus, L. jensenii), Gardnerella vaginalis, and Atophobium vaginae.

The Aptima CV/TV Assay is an in vitro NAA test utilizing real time TMA for the qualitative detection of RNA associated with vulvovaginal candidiasis and trichomoniasis for the following organisms: Candida species group (C.albicans, C. tropicalis, C. parapsilosis, and C. dubliniensis), Candida glabrata, and Trichomonas vaginalis. Results should be interpreted in conjunction with clinical findings and should not preclude additional studies if findings do not correlate.

The Aptima Trichomonas vaginalis Assay is qualitative nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT) for the detection of Trichomonas vaginalis.
