Selective Culture Medium For The Direct Detection Of Motile Tritrichomonas Foetus Trophozoites
Test applicable to: CatSample: Faeces
InPouch TF-Feline is a unique, self-contained device incorporating enrichment medium for the detection of Tritrichomonas foetus trophozoites in fresh feline faeces, in the clinic, by direct microscopy.
The proprietary medium is selective for the transport and growth of the trichomonad while inhibiting the growth of yeast, mould and bacteria which might interfere with a reliable diagnosis.
Two Compartment System
The InPouch consists of a high barrier, oxygen resistant, plastic pouch with two V-shaped chambers connected by a narrow passage. This two-compartment system allows direct observation (wet amount) of a newly collected specimen in the upper chamber before expressing the contents into the lower chamber for culture.
The InPouch is sensitive enough that inoculums containing as little as 1 organism are sufficient to potentially result in a presumptive positive test. Presumptive positive pouches for T. foetus can be tested via a PCR procedure to verify the result. Transport and off-site testing can be performed easily due to the flexible packaging and integral design of the pouch.
