Genica FEMOFLOR ®

The vaginal microflora is a complex and dynamic ecosystem; its condition depends on many external and internal factors, including age, sexual behavior, hormonal status, stress and fatigue, the use of various drugs. The composition and the nature of the vaginal biocenosis has a  significant influence on woman's health and reproductive functions. Vaginal dysbiosis is a clinical syndrome of polymicrobial etiology. It is the result of complex relationships and dynamics among microorganisms, which are part of the natural vaginal microflora. The complex assessment of the microbial composition in the female reproductive tract is of the greatest importance for establishing the etiology of the inflammatory process and the choice of appropriate treatment.

84% of women have no symptoms thus the condition often goes unnoticed. 40% remain misdiagnosed due to limitations of widely used diagnostic methods.

Changes to the normal female microbiota increase the risks of developing sexually transmitted infections and lead to negative consequences for woman's health and reproductive functions.


About the Test

FEMOFLOR ®

FEMOFLOR® is a comprehensive assay based on real-time PCR for complex evaluation of vaginal microbiome composition, diagnosis of dysbiotic conditions and detection of sexually transmitted infections.  

Aerobic and anaerobic opportunistic pathogens are present in certain concentrations as a component of the natural microflora in the female urogenital tract. Establishing the amount of these opportunistic microorganisms and their exact ratio to the number of  lactobacillus and the total number of microorganisms provides information about the patient's cervico-vaginal status, being within the norm or having a disease.

Traditional, widely used, diagnostic tests are associated with subjectivity in reporting the results and in distinguishing the norm from dysbacteriosis. They are also unable to cultivate a large number of anaerobic microorganisms with a clear etiology in the development of dysbiosis. This is often the reason for incorrect diagnosis and inappropriate treatment, increase in recurrences and resulting complications.

With FEMOFLOR ®, for the first time with one test only is possible to detect the microbial composition and the relationship between microorganisms in the female urogenital tract and to define ACCURATELY the patient's condition (within norm or dysbacteriosis).


Life with Care for HER

Prevention and Control of Vaginal Dysbacteriosis
Preventive prophylaxis TODAY is the guarantee for your good health TOMORROW
Prophylaxis of bacterial vaginosis - is it necessary?

In a large number of cases, there are no obvious symptoms of vaginal dysbiosis and this condition often goes unnoticed. Prophylactic tests are recommended for early diagnosis and adequate treatment, especially for pregnant women, for women planning a pregnancy, as well as prior forthcoming surgical manipulations of the urogenital tract.

Vaginal dysbiosis and pregnancy

Vaginal dysbiosis during pregnancy is a particularly dangerous condition as it can lead to serious complications, including miscarriage, premature birth, increased risk of acquiring sexually transmitted infections, inflammation of the pelvis, fallopian tubes and amniotic membranes.

Improperly diagnosed and treated, vaginal dysbiosis during pregnancy can also affect the baby's health in the first days after birth. Therefore, proper diagnosis during pregnancy is extremely important.

How to get tested?

 All you have to do is to contact your gynecologist and ask about Femoflor! Your doctor will tell you how to get ready for the test and will choose the right test panel for you - Femoflor ® 16 or Femoflor ® Screen. The sampling process is quick and painless. Contact us to get more information about the test and where you can do it.

Why choose FEMOFLOR ®?

FEMOFLOR ® is a fast, painless and modern molecular diagnostic test for complex analysis and assessment of the microflora in the female urogenital tract, for the diagnosis of dysbiosis and for the detection of sexually transmitted infections. The analysis is of significant informative value and helps the proper diagnosis and treatment, as well as the monitoring during treatment.

Patient Care
Modern Laboratory Practices

The mission of Diagnostic of Urogenital Infections Department at GENICA is  to help people lead safer and healthier life by providing up-to-date information, medical research and scientific data that lead to preventing urogenital infections and further complications.

The specific objectives of the department are the promotion of sexual health and the primary prevention of sexually transmitted diseases.

Nucleic acid amplification tests (NAAT; PCR) are a new generation of diagnostic platforms for the diagnosis of bacterial vaginosis. They are the only one that distinguish the state of disease from the norm and degree of dysbacteriosis.
