Pacific Rim Pathology processes over 8000 non-gynecologic specimens annually using liquid based ThinPrep technology. We utilize an FDA approved and automated digital imaging system for the detection and evaluation of abnormal cells.
The liquid-based specimen can be used for HPV, Chlamydia, Neisseria Gonorrhoeae, Trichomoniasis and other molecular-based tests. Concurrent cytology and ancillary test results are always linked within the same report.
Why send out to multiple laboratories for specialized testing on a patient specimen when we can perform all your testing needs at once? The ThinPrep Pap test from Hologic is the only FDA-approved test for both Pap and HPV testing from a single vial.
Through a single vial, we can screen for cervical cancer and other ancillary tests using a single sample. At Pacific Rim, the liquid based specimen can be used for the testing of High Risk HPV, HPV 16 and 18/45 genotyping, Chlamydia and Neisseria Gonorrhea, and Trichomoniasis.
