Detect Bovine Trichomoniasis

InPouch TF® is a simple-to-use culture media for the detection of Tritrichomonas foetus – the parasite that causes Bovine Trichomoniasis. Designed for collection, transport and detection, the proprietary medium is highly selective and specific for trich — with a nutritive culture that maintains and propagates the parasite for easy visual detection.

Simply swab and inoculate the fluid at the point-of-care. Parasite flagellates can be observed at 10X magnification.

Trich infections are devastating for cattle producers

One bull can infect a large portion of the herd. Testing bulls for Trich before and after breeding season protects your herd and investment. Even with a closed herd, and no community pastures, there is still risk of Trichomoniasis if infected cow or bull from a neighboring herd comes through the fence. Trichomoniasis is difficult to eradicate. The costs of a trich-infected bull can be staggering; infected cows experience reproductive failure, lower calving frequency, and more — infected bulls need to be destroyed as they do not exhibit symptoms. Colorado State University published an analysis of Trichomoniasis Prevention: the Cost per Cow to Prevent



Simple Convenience
  • Combine culture, result and microscopic observation in one IVD device.  
  • Highly selective prepared media in a device designed for in-vitro specimen transport and incubation.
  • Rapid presumptive diagnosis of T. foetus in cattle
  • Recommended as a parallel test with other POC rapid tests. 
  • InPouch can be placed directly on microscope stage
  • PCR Compatible
Accurate Detection

TF medium is known to be effective in preserving T. foetusT. suisT. galliniae and P. hominis.

Time to Result

Incubate the pouch vertically at 35-37°C for up to 6 days. InPouch TF is designed for safe transport, if needed. Inoculated InPouch TF tests should be transported within 48 hours after inoculation and maintained at 15-37°C.


InPouch TF - Bovine has a shelf life of 12 months from the date of manufacture

Do not refrigerate or freeze InPouch TF tests. Upon receipt, store at 18-25°C horizontally, away from direct sunlight. Do not use expired tests. Do not use an InPouch test if the liquid appears to be cloudy, leaky, dark brown or dried.
