The OSOM BVBLUE Test includes a chromogenic substrate of bacterial sialidase. In the test procedure, a vaginal fluid sample is placed in the BV Test Vessel. The sample then reacts with the chromogenic substrate. A Developer Solution is added after the reaction. If the sample has a high level of sialidase, a blue or green color will be seen in the BV Test Vessel or on the head of the swab. If the sample has no sialidase, or has very low levels, a yellow color will be seen in the BV Test Vessel .
Used to detect elevated vaginal fluid sialidase activity, an enzyme produced by bacterial pathogens associated with Bacterial Vaginosis including Gardnerella, Bacteroides, Prevotella and Mobilincus.
