Vision Amniotic Leak Detector to assess unexplained vaginal wetness in pregnancy

The Vision ALD is a non-invasive diagnostic panty liner that can be used to assess whether unexplained vaginal wetness in pregnancy could be leaking amniotic fluid. The liner has a central polymer-embedded strip that turns blue-green if amniotic fluid is present, otherwise the strip remains yellow. The presence of amniotic fluid can subsequently be confirmed by a speculum examination in the case of a blue-green result.
