(FR) DISPOSITIF ET PROCÉDÉ D'ESSAI RELATIF À DES INFECTIONS VAGINALES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The device (10) includes three test areas (12)(14) and (16) for receiving a sample of vaginal fluid thereon. Test area (12) is a PHjndicator area for indicating the PH of the vaginal fluid sample, the indicator covering a pH range of from 3, 5 to 8. Test area (14) is a leucocyte count indicator area for indicating the leucocyte count of the vaginal fluid sample, the indicator typically covering a leucocyte count range from zero to three. Test area (16) is an amine test area impregnated with a ten percent potassium hydroxide solution. The vaginal infections that the device (10) can be used to test for are: a bacterial infection, a protozoal infection, and a fungal infection.
(FR)Le dispositif selon l'invention comporte trois zones d'essai (12, 14 et 16) destinées à recevoir un échantillon de liquide vaginal. La zone d'essai (12) est une zone indicateur de pH qui indique le pH de l'échantillon de liquide vaginal, l'indicateur couvrant une plage de pH allant de 3,5 à 8. La zone d'essai (14) est un indicateur de comptage de leucocytes de l'échantillon de liquide vaginal, l'indicateur d'ordinaire couvrant une plage de comptage de leucocytes allant de zéro à trois. La zone d'essai (16) est une zone d'essai d'amines imprégnée de 10% d'une solution d'hydroxyde de potassium. Les infections vaginales que le dispositif (10) permet de soumettre à essai sont : infection bactérienne, infection protozoaire et infection fongique.
