Rapid staining technique for Trichomonas vaginalis. Preliminary report

, : Rapid staining technique for Trichomonas vaginalis. Preliminary report. British Journal of Venereal Diseases 55(4): 289-291

A simple, rapid staining method for the identification of T. vaginalis was tested on cultured trichomonads and specimens of [human] vaginal discharge. Stained slides (58) of vaginal discharge were examined and trichomonads were correctly identified in the 31 specimens from patients with confirmed vaginal trichomoniasis. No false-positive results were obtained. This staining procedure could prove a useful addition to wet-film and cultural methods.
