ThinPrep® Pap Test – Cervical Cancer Screening

A) ThinPrep® Pap Test System– Cervical Cancer Screening

- ThinPrep 2000 Processor

Thin prep 2000The ThinPrep 2000 Processor is an automated slide preparation unit used with the ThinPrep Pap Test for cervical cancer screening and can also be used for non-gynecological specimens such as for the diagnosis of cancers of the lung, bladder, and gastrointestinal tract, and in the preparation of fine needle aspiration of thyroid and breast.

- ThinPrep 5000 Processor

thinprep 5000The T5000 Processor is part of the ThinPrep platform.  It is a ”walk away” processor which significantly reduces the time required to process specimens, freeing up a technician’s time for other tasks while specimens are being processed.  Systems with these efficiencies are an integral part of a lean pathology lab.

C) ThinPrep® Pap Test – Imaging System

ThinPrep Imaging System

ThinprepThe ThinPrep Imaging System represents a significant advance in diagnostic capability, with two unique components for comprehensive and accurate cervical cancer testing.

The ThinPrep Pap Test offers several advantages over the conventional pap smear, including improved disease detection and testing for HPV, Chlamydia/Gonorrhea and Trichomonas straight from the vial, and the ThinPrep Imaging System with Dual Review offers additional advantages over manually reviewed ThinPrep Pap Test slides.

ThinPrep Integrated Imager

thinprepintergrated“The ThinPrep integrated imager is designed to provide the small and medium volume laboratory access to the most effective and efficient cytology screening technology available, while allowing them the flexibility to address their specific productivity and throughput needs.” The majority of laboratories in Europe would fall into the small or medium category.

The integrated imager analyzes a ThinPrep Pap test slide in approximately 90 seconds, during which time each cell and cell cluster is scanned. Using optical density analysis, the integrated imager identifies diagnostically-relevant cells or cell groups and then stores coordinates of the 22 fields of interest. These 22 fields of interest are presented to the cytotechnologist for interpretation. If no abnormalities are identified by the cytotechnologist, the slide can be signed out as negative or proceed through the laboratory quality control system. A complete slide review is required if the user detects any suspicious cells within the 22 fields of view. This dual review process combines human interpretative expertise with the power of computer imaging.
