Sekisui Bacterial Vaginosis Test Gets CE Mark

NEW YORK (360Dx) – Sekisui Diagnotics today announced it received CE marking for its Osom BvBlue test.

The firm also announced the launch of the test for diagnosing bacterial vaginosis in Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa.

According to the Lexington, Massachusetts-based company, Osom BvBlue provides results with minimal hands-on time by detecting elevated levels of the enzyme sialidase, which is produced by the four major pathogens associated with BV. Results can be achieved in 10 minutes with one minute of hands-on time.

Combined with the Osom Trichomonas test, Osom BvBlue provides comprehensive diagnostic testing for two of the most common vaginal and sexually transmitted diseases in the world, Sekisui said.
