Overview

Other diagnostic studies associated with diagnosis of bacterial vaginosis (BV) include Affirm VP III test, chromogenic diagnostic test (OSOM BVBlue system), and quantitative polymerase chain reaction (PCR).[1][2][3][4]

Other diagnostic studies

Other diagnostic studies associated with diagnosis of bacterial vaginosis (BV) include Affirm VP III test, chromogenic diagnostic test (OSOM BVBlue system), and quantitative polymerase chain reaction (PCR). These diagnostic studies are not widely used, because Amsel criteria has a great performance. These tests is usually reserved when microscopy evaluation is not available.[1][2][3][4]
