New STI PCR panel available at Mater Pathology

Mater Pathology now offers Trichomonas vaginalis in a new PCR panel for sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

In recent times, the use of PCR for diagnosis of Trichomonas vaginalis (TV) has become favourable over microscopy, which has been widely used until now.

A study of TV testing performed by Mater Pathology has distinguished PCR as a superior method over microscopy for diagnosis.
