      Women's Health Assays

      With just one sample, the Aptima Multitest Swab simplifies testing and provides more answers for sexual and vaginal health.

      Vaginal Swab is the CDC’s Preferred Collection Method for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea1

      "Specimens obtained with a vaginal swab are the preferred specimen type. Vaginal swab specimens are as sensitive as cervical swab specimens and there is no difference in specificity.1" - CDC

      Flexible

      Can be used to collect samples from a variety of specimen collection sites.2

      Versatile

      Detect up to 7 infections and disease states with just one vaginal swab.3-6

      Reliable

      Urine samples can miss up to 10% of underlying infections where vaginal samples can miss fewer than 1% of infections.7-9*

      Convenient

      Decrease patient callbacks for re-collection when reflex or add-on testing is ordered.

      Reduce human error and repetitive motion injuries.

      Eliminate manual uncapping, recapping and specimen transfer.

      Penetrable cap serves as additional cross-contamination barrier.

      Guanidine free, non-toxic media.

      *  Refer to individual assay package inserts for cleared specimen types and performance claims.
