BD SurePath™ liquid-based Pap test

BD SurePath™ liquid-based Pap test

Give your practice the competitive edge by choosing the unique sample collection, preservative, and processing that only BD SurePath™ liquid-based Pap test can provide.
Not all Pap tests are the same. The BD SurePath™ Pap test , FDA-approved liquid-based Pap test offers unique advantages.
Safe and Effective:
  • 64.4% increase (p < 0.00001) increase in the detection of HSIL+ lesions1 giving you confidence in finding abnormality.
  • BD SurePath™ Pap test uses an ethanol-based proprietary preservative that is non-carcinogenic so you don’t have to be concerned with handling or storing the vial.
Fewer Patient Call Backs:
  • Proprietary BD SurePath™ Cell Enrichment process reduces obscuring material,enabling a clear view for visualization of diagnostically relevant cells.
  • Statistically significant reduction in Unsatisfactory cases2, reducing unnecessary and inconvenient repeat testing.
Less Worry:
  • Easy-to-use detachable head device(s) ensures 100% of the collected sample is sent to the laboratory for processing, reducing the risk of missing abnormality due to discarding the sample during sample transfer.
Flexibility:
  • Up to five slides can be made from the BD SurePath™ cell pellet and the residual patient sample can be retained for additional testing.
  • Immuno/probe cytology compatible.
  • Extended sample stability – 4 weeks room temperature,15-30°C and 6 months refrigerated 2-10°C.
  • Extended shelf-life of 36 months from date of manufacture.

BD PrepStain™
Slide Processor

BD PrepStain™ slide processor
BD PrepStain™ Slide Processor provides significant advantages for your laboratory.
 
Safety:
  • The BD SurePath™ process helps ensure chain of custody through barcode labels, scanning and tracking of sample; ensuring same sample from vial-to-slide.
  • A closed system. Once the vial is sealed by the sample collector, it is never reopened during processing. Unique puncture top BD SurePath™ vial mixes and dispenses without human interaction.
  • BD SurePath™ preservative has less than 24% Ethanol, is classified as non-hazardous for transport, and is an ideal medium for maintaining cellular morphology.
Less Worry:
  • Proprietary BD SurePath™ Cell Enrichment process reduces obscuring material such as blood, mucous and inflammatory cells, enabling a clear view for visualization of diagnostically relevant cells.
  • Statistically significant reduction in Unsatisfactory cases2.
Workflow Efficiency:
  • Walk-away automation that requires less than one-minute per specimen pre-processing time and minimal hands-on Prep Tech labor.
  • Reduction in staining steps via optional on-board staining.
  • High throughput processing – 92 slides per hour without staining, 48 slides per hour with staining improving capacity.
Flexibility:
  • Ample sample volume available, either pre- or post- BD SurePath™ Cell Enrichment; additional slides can be made from the BD SurePath™ cell pellet.
  • Gynecology and non-gynecology applications to meet all your cytology needs.

BD FocalPoint™
Slide Profiler

BD FocalPoint™ slide profiler
The BD FocalPoint™ Slide Profiler provides Intelligent Pap Imaging™ technology to make life easier in the lab.
 

  • BD FocalPoint™ Slide Profiler directs cytotechnologist attention to slides most likely to contain abnormality, improving disease detection over manual review1.
  • Detected numerically more HSIL+ slides as compared to manual review in BD SurePath™ Pap test clinical trials3.
  • Automated intelligence technology detects morphologic changes and ranks slides based on the probability of an abnormality.
  • Reduction in false-negatives and false-positives for conventional slides.
  • High throughput scanning and analysis improves capacity by as much as 33%.
  • Selects an enriched population of slides for quality control (QC). The QC population of slides is subject to 3 screening events to reduce the potential of false-negatives: BD FocalPoint™ Slide Profiler, cytotechnologist, and directed.
  • FDA-approved for both BD SurePath™ liquid-based Pap and conventional slides.
