Vaginitis affects over 75% of women once in their lifetime. It has a 40-45% chance of re-occurrence and is the leading cause of gynaecological consultation.

The main causes of vaginitis are bacteria (Bacterial Vaginosis), candida species (Vulvovaginal Candidiasis) or trichomonas vaginalis.
The symptoms are the same: burning, itching, odor and discharge, but the treatment is different. Severe complications in case of late and/or improper treatment include: adverse pregnancy outcomes, reproductive health problems, and increased risk for acquiring HPV or sexually transmitted infections like HIV, chlamydia and gonorrhea.
Bacterial Vaginosis (BV)

The normal balance in the vagina changes due to the increase of anaerobic bacteria.

40-50% of cases

Vulvovaginal Candidiasis (CV)

Fungi normally live on the skin and inside the body. Infection can happen due to hormones, medicines, or changes in the immune system.

20-25% of cases

Antifungal medicine
Trichomonas Vaginalis (TV)

This type of vaginitis is a very common STD. Although symptoms may vary, most people who have trichomoniasis cannot tell they have it.

15-20% of cases


The most common type is Bacterial Vaginosis

in 3
1 in 3 women will suffer from BV in their lifetime.
21.2 million or 29.2% is estimated to be the prevalence of BV for women in the US ages 14-49.
66% of women mistake BV symptoms for thrush. BV is also twice as common as thrush.
Women with BV are 6 times more likely to have a miscarriage.
Women with BV are twice as likely to have a premature birth than other women.
Diagnosing vaginitis at POC

Vaginitis is the most common gynaecological disorder in primary care, but today there are no fast and accurate tools available at the point of care (POC) to diagnose vaginitis.

It is difficult to diagnose vaginitis, as clinical signs and symptoms have only limited diagnostic value, and the most accurate standard for diagnosis, molecular PCR tests, are generally performed on large lab-based instruments with 1-3 days turnaround time.

Patients often get empirically treated before the lab results come in, assuming a PCR test is done at all. This can cause mistreatment, discomfort for the patients and insecurities.


Our proposed solution will deliver fast and accurate diagnosis for vaginitis at POC.

The vaginitis test is intended to detect presence of bacterial vaginosis, vulvovaginal candidiasis and trichomonas vaginalis in vaginal swab samples collected from symptomatic women within 20 minutes using an easy to use and compact POC test platform.

Accurate results in less than 20 minutes.

  • Immediate access to the right treatment
  • Alleviate discomfort
  • Improve self-confidence
  • Avoid misdiagnosis
  • Eliminate recurrent doctor’s visits
  • Reduce severe complications

Swab Sample

For use with clinician collected and patient collected vaginal swabs.

PCR Card

A small volume of the sample (5µl) is placed on the disposable PCR Card containing the silicon chip.


The multiple use, portable reader performs the temperature cycling and optical detection, processes data and communicates the test result.

Key Benefits.


Unique silicon chip technology allowing for ultra-fast PCR


Built-in controls ensure the highest quality result


Easy-to-use touchscreen with intuitive user-interface and build-in scanning technology


Closed reaction chamber limits risk of contamination and cross-infection


Reports directly send to laboratory/POC information systems, or network printer


Platform compatible with various tests
