BD SurePath™ Process

Step 1. BD SurePath™ Cell Enrichment

The proprietary BD SurePath™ Cell Enrichment process using the
BD PrepMate™ Cell Enrichment System

  • Sample integrity by automatically piercing the cap to minimize cross-contamination.
  • Removal of obscuring debris like mucous and inflammatory cells to minimize “Unsats” and therefore patient call-backs.
  • Consistent sample volume for cell uniformity across each slide.


Step 2. Automatic Slide Preparation

Slide uniformity enables the cytotechnologist and pathologist to be confident in their report to you in the detection of disease or its pre-cursor lesions. The BD PrepStain™ Slide Processor generates unsurpassed slide uniformity.


Step 3. BD FocalPoint™ Imaging

The BD FocalPoint™ Slide Profiler directs the cytotechnologist’s attention to slides most likely to contain abnormality, improving disease detection over manual review.
