I'd imagine it's pretty accurate, since it seems to be nothing more than a more-complicated pH test. Bacterial vaginosis will generally result in a pH level of above 4.5, while yeast will generally be within the normal range of a healthy vagina.
I have mixed feelings about it, just like I do with the OTC creams. On one hand it could be a valuable asset to women with no other source of healthcare, but on the other, products like this tend to be overpriced and impress a certain urgency on women, though I can agree it is better than blind self-diagnosis if a woman cannot or will not see a doctor.
