A rapid test for the semi-quantitative determination of pH in female vaginal swab specimens

Vaginal infections are quite common and often a recurring problem among women of all age groups. An indication of abnormal acidity of the vaginal discharge can help evaluate whether the vaginal symptoms are likely caused by an infection that may require follow-up with a healthcare professional.

An acidic vaginal pH value of 3.8 to 4.5 is a basic requirement for the optimal functioning of the body’s own system of protecting the vagina. This system can effectively avoid colonization by pathogenic germs and the occurrence of vaginal infections.

A pH paper is used to determine pH levels in specimen obtained through a vaginal swab. As soon as the swab containing the specimen from vagina comes in contact with the pH paper encased in the test panel, a color change occurs. Different pH levels can result in different grades and shades of color with each color grade/ shade specifying a particular pH level on the color scale. The color obtained on the pH paper after application of the vaginal swab is then compared with the color scale provided with the test unit. The result is considered to be approximately equivalent to the numerical value of the color on the color scale closest in appearance to the color obtained on pH paper.

Materials provided

  • Test Panel
  • Swab
  • Package insert
Directions for use

Allow the test, reagents, swab specimens, and/or controls to reach room temperature (15-30) prior to testing.

1 Remove the test panel from the seal pouch and use it within one hour. The best result will be obtained if the test is performed immediately after opening the foil pouch.

2 Place the test panel on a clean and balance desk or take it by your free hand.

3 Apply the head of the swab onto PH area of the test panel for at least 5 times, make sure enough secretion is applied on the pH area of the test panel.

4 Read. the result immediately while the measurement zone is still wet. Compare the color in the pH measurement zone with the color scale on the foil pouch and note the value on the color scale that is closest to the color on the test unit. After evaluation, dispose of the used panel and swab.

Interpretations of results

Results are obtained by visually comparing the PH measurement zone with the color scale on the foil pouch.

NORMAL RANGE: Vaginal pH levels in the range 3.8-4.4 are within the normal range. The color of the indicator is Yellow-Green.

ABNORMAL RANGE: Vaginal pH levels over 4.4 or under 3.8 are outside of the normal/healthy range. When pH level is over 4.4, the color of the indicator is Green-Blue, when pH levels are under 3.8, it is bright Yellow.
