An office laboratory panel to assess vaginal problems.
Am Fam Physician. 1985 Sep; 32(3):113-25.AF

Abstract

In determining the cause of vaginal complaints, the routine use of four simple tests ("the vagina panel") enables the physician to identify pathogens (Candida, Gardnerella, Trichomonas), pathologic processes (inflammation, estrogen deficiency) and, in most instances, a healthy vagina. Time and money are saved. The specimens can be collected in one minute during a pelvic examination. The panel can provide the answers to eight essential questions in two minutes of observer time, with supplies costing about $2.
