Aptima Trich Assay
Physicians Laboratory is pleased to offer the Aptima assay for Trichomas vaginalis detection.  This test can be performed from the ThinPrep vial at the same time as the Pap.  This is a highly sensitive and specific assay that will help deliver both positive and negative results with confidence.

Untreated TV has been linked to several other conditions, including:
  • Prolonged HPV infection
  • Concurrent STIs such as Chlamydia and Gonorrohea
  • Preterm delivery
We have updated our requisition with the option to order Trichomonas testing.  The CPT code for this test is 87661.  The test MUST be ordered at the time of collection, just as with CT/NG.  To order, simply check the Trichomonas vaginalis testing box.  Providers will receive one integrated report with all testing results.
