To diagnose bacterial vaginosis and concomitant infection with Chlamydia trachomatis and/or Neisseria gonorrhoeae in sexually active women.

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 the tube.

Results from the Aptima Combo 2 Assay should be interpreted in
conjunction with other laboratory and clinical data available to the
clinician.

The Aptima Combo 2 Assay is not intended for the evaluation of
suspected sexual abuse or for other medico-legal indications.
