A microbiology sample collection, transport, and culture device that allows for simultaneous growth and observation of Tritrichomonas foetus, the parasite responsible for the gastrointestinal infection trichomoniasis in felines.
Consists of a high barrier, oxygen resistant, plastic pouch with two V-shaped chambers
The innovative two-compartment system allows for direct preliminary observation of a newly collected specimen in the upper chamber before expressingthe contents into the lower chamber for culture
Combining both growth and observation into one fully enclosed system removes the need to prepare wet mount slides
Increased efficiency while decreasing the cost of laboratory materials and medical waste.
