To diagnose the causative agent(s) of vaginosis/vaginitis.

Follow the instructions provided in the Aptima Vaginal or Unisex
Swab Collection Kit. Remove the swab from the packaging
and insert the swab into the vagina about two inches inside
the opening. Gently rotate for 10 to 30 seconds, making
sure that the swab touches the wall of the vagina so that
moisture is absorbed by the swab. Withdraw the swab
without touching the skin. Immediately place the swab into
the transport tube so that the tip of the swab is visible
below the tube label. Carefully break the swab shaft at the
score line against the side of the tube and discard the top
portion of the swab shaft. Tightly screw the cap onto
tube.

Samples in leaking, uncapped
or broken containers, samples QNS or exceeding stability
will be rejected.
