NUVETEST® effectively measures vaginal acidity associated with BV due to its buffer capacity
The inclusion of buffer capacity allows NUVETEST® to capture those patients misdiagnosed with pH paper alone.
Unlike regular pH tests which miss about 22% of BV cases with normal pH levels, NUVETEST® improves detection accuracy to approximately 90% for added assurance.1
Interpretation of NUVETEST® results
Warnings and Precautions
Collect vaginal discharge from the anterior fornix or lateral vaginal wall of the mid vagina. Do not insert the NUVETEST® further than 5 cm (2") in the vagina, to avoid contact with the cervix mucus, where pH levels are known to be higher than normal vaginal pH.
Do not use lubricants which alter vaginal acidity.
If the patient is pregnant, the stain may indicate an amniotic fluid leakage.
To ensure valid results, do not use NUVETEST® in any of the following conditions:
Less than 1 day before or the day after the patient’s menstrual period;
There are signs of menstruation or any vaginal bleeding;
Less than 12 hours after sexual intercourse or use of vaginal products such as douching solutions or medications which alter vaginal acidity.
