Diagnostic – ThinPrep Pap test


A robust body of evidence in multiple medical journals show the ThinPrep Pap test has improved specimen adequacy and cervical disease detection versus conventional Pap testing



Clinician versatility

The ThinPrep Pap test was the first liquid-based Pap test FDA-approved/cleared for HPV, chlamydia/gonorrhea and trichomoniasis testing out of the same vial.

FDA approval/clearance gives you the confidence in test results without having to self-validate tests.

 Since the ThinPrep Pap test was approved by the FDA in 1996, more than 170 studies have demonstrated its benefits, including increased disease detection, reduction of equivocal diagnoses, improved specimen adequacy, adjunctive molecular testing and morphology assessment. These published, peer-reviewed studies involving hundreds of thousands of patients show a significant benefit in the ThinPrep Pap test compared to a conventional pap smear. These studies, conducted in 7 different countries over 4 continents, also consistently demonstrate improved specimen adequacy. Additionally, the ThinPrep Imaging system has been shown to provide further improvements in disease detection along with decreased false negative rates compared to manually reviewed ThinPrep Pap test slides.

Specimen collection is a key factor in obtaining adequate and representative samples for analysis. Therefore, when collecting specimens, it is important to use appropriate devices and techniques, such as avoiding the use of lubricants. The ThinPrep Pap test’s standard preparation method for specimen collection has been used by physicians for over 10 years for a variety of cytologic specimens.
