This is an evaluation study of the Presto(plus) Assay for T. vaginalis by comparing to the TIB MOLBIOL LightMix Kit Trichomonas vaginalis Assay using 615 dry collected vaginal and rectal swabs. Discordant samples were analyzed by the Qiagen (R) Microbial DNA qPCR for TV Assay. Both assays showed comparable performances (McNemar p > 0.05).
