Rapid CDIATM Vaginal Yeast kits are intended for the detection of Vaginal yeast infections caused by Candida.
Vaginal yeast infections, also known as candidiasis, are a common female condition. Yeast infections are caused by the fungus Candida,a naturally occurring microorganism in the vaginal area. Most yeast infections are caused by Candida albicans—a specific strand of yeast. Up to 75% of women will have this infection at some point in their lives, and approximately 5% will have recurring episodes. It is the second most common cause of vaginal inflammation after bacterial vaginosis.
