Specimen Collection

ThinPrep Pap Test Specimen Collection

Specimen collection is a key factor in obtaining adequate and representative samples for analysis. Therefore, when collecting specimens, it is important to use appropriate devices and techniques, such as avoiding the use of lubricants, or if they are used, using them sparingly. The ThinPrep Pap Test's standard preparation method for specimen collection has been used by physicians for over 10 years for a variety of cytologic specimens.
