ThinPrep Imaging System: First to be offered by Parkway Laboratory Services Ltd
Singapore, 22 June 2011 – Since the introduction of the conventional Pap smear more than 50 years ago, two key technological advances have raised cervical cancer screening standards to new levels:
The introduction of the ThinPrep Pap Test in 1996 was the world’s first major advance in cervical cancer screening. With this method, cervical cells are rinsed into a liquid and a machine prepares the sample for microscopic review. Representative cervical cells placed on a glass slide in a thin, even layer resulted in improved detection of disease. The ThinPrep Pap Test is the most widely used Pap test in the United States, and Parkway has been offering this technology in Singapore for more than 10 years.
