Improve HSIL+ detection
The BD SurePath™ liquid-based Pap test provides advantages over conventional Pap smears and other liquid-based cytology (LBC) tests, resulting in greater disease detection.
100% of cells for the lab
The test features two-in-one brushes with detachable heads, and ethanol-based vials that preserve samples and ensure that 100% of the cells arrive at the lab.
Reduced unsats and patient recalls
As a result of both the sample collection method (that sends 100% of cells to the lab, well-preserved) and cell enrichment (that removes all debris), the test exhibits lower unsats than any other method, decreasing patient callbacks and sample reprocessing.
The unique BD cell enrichment process separates and removes blood, mucus and interfering materials from the sample, transferring only the most diagnostically relevant material to the slide.
Increased abnormal cell detection
After the steps from collection to cell enrichment, the result is a clear presentation of cells to increase HSIL+ detection compared to that of conventional pap slides.
Duplicated 2D barcodes
When used with the BD Totalys™ system, the BD SurePath barcodes allow positive sample identification (PSID) from collection through cytological and molecular testing, providing greater confidence in results.
The preservative is noncarcinogenic, eliminating concern over handling or storing the vial.
To collect a sample using the BD SurePath liquid-based Pap test, take the following steps:
Collect the cervical sample with the Rovers® Cervex-Brush® device.* Insert the device into the endocervical canal. Rotate the brush five times clockwise.
Place the cap on the vial, and tighten it. Send the sample to the lab for processing.
Drop the detachable head of the device into the BD SurePath collection vial. All brush heads must be placed into the larger chamber of the vial.
Read the slides with or without an automated imager, after automated instruments perform cell enrichment on the specimen, and prepare and stain the slides.
