Visby Medical PCR

Game-changing: The first true PCR point-of-care device for STI that’s all-in-one and requires no separate instrument or reader. Results available during the patient’s visit help to eliminate the guesswork of empirical medicine and patient callbacks associated with lab send outs. With the confidence of a PCR result, clinicians can prescribe the correct treatment and engage in a clear, guiding discussion with the patient.

Three critical targets

Our sexual health test targets three pathogens that, if left untreated, can cause permanent damage to a woman’s reproductive system, including infertility, or potentially causing fatal ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy that occurs outside the womb). Fast PCR can help with early detection of these serious infections.

Caused by a protozoan parasite, Trichomoniasis is the third most common STI in the US4, yet most do not realize they are infected. Trichomoniasis increases the risk of contracting other STIs, including 2-3 times greater risk of HIV acquisition5.
