Overview

The BD Affirm™ VPIII microbial identification system is a molecular system for the detection of vaginitis. It helps achieve objective results for better patient care through an accurate, easy-to-use, automated platform. Traditional methods for the detection of vaginitis, such as microscopy, Gram staining and culture, are subjective. These methods are also shown through repeated studies to be low in sensitivity and specificity, and highly demanding on staff. The BD Affirm™ VPIII system helps solve these problems.

Features and Benefits
Accuracy
DNA-probe technology has been shown to be more sensitive and specific, leading to improved outcomes.
Efficiency
The system processes six specimens simultaneously in under 45 minutes with less than 2.5 minutes of hands-on time.
Actionable results
Easy-to-read visual results cards allow for consistent outcomes and improved workflow.
Management of difficult infections
DNA-probe technology manages mixed or difficult infections by binding only the true target and not interfering substances.
Efficient
A single swab is for all three organisms (Candida, Gardnerella, Trichomonas).
Automation
The system features automated processing.
Threshold
The system features a nonamplified, built-in threshold of disease detection (it will not overcall normal flora as an infection).
