In brief: No
Amplification probes are nucleic acid based and very specific for either gonorhrea or chlamydia, and not for trichimonasis.
The gold standard for trich is microscopy.

In brief: No
The trichomonas has to be seen in the microscope inmediately the samples are taking.
Affirm vpiii test is good x candida (yeast) species, gardnerella vaginalis, and trichomonas vaginalis is possible from a single vaginal sample.Genzyme diagnostics' osom trichomonas rapid test is a new point-of-care, antigen-detecting diagnostic test. Elevated vaginal pH may be an indication of trichomoniasis.
