In this study, we evaluated the performance of a new culture colorimetric detection assay named MYCO WELL D-ONE, that detects some of the sexually transmitted pathogens, namely: GV, TV MH, MG, UU, and UP The last three pathogens (MG, UU, and UP) are detected, but not discriminated by this assay Therefore, a colorimetric change toward the positivity in the well containing selective medium for the growth of mycoplasmas can be attributed not only to MG, but also to other Mycoplasma spp.
