The AVID Screen


The AVID Screen is the practical answer to this health care necessity, providing comprehensive testing for bacterial vaginosis, candida vaginitis, and trichomoniasis.

Detects 3 Categories of Infectious Agents:

AVID Screen gives positive or negative indication of bacterial vaginosis, candida vaginitis, and trichomonas species.

Conclusive Results with Advanced Technology:

Real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) is the leading method for delivering objective test results.

Standardized Data for Maximum Efficiency:

AVID Screen provides clear, objective results with a fast turnaround so that you may skip the time-consuming clinical conjecture and quickly recommend the right course of treatment.
