Cobas® HPV Test
COBAS® HPV Test
The cobas® HPV Test is a qualitative in vitro test for the detection of Human Papillomavirus in patient specimens. The test utilises amplification of target DNA by the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) and nucleic acid hybridisation for the detection of 14 high-risk (HR) HPV types in a single analysis. The test specifically identifies (types) HPV 16 and HPV 18 while concurrently detecting the rest of the high risk types (31, 33, 35, 39, 45, 51, 52, 56, 58, 59, 66 and 68) at clinically relevant infection levels.
Specimens are limited to cervical cells collected in cobas PCR Cell Collection Media, PreservCyt Solution (Cytyc Corp.) and SurePath Preservative Fluid (BD Diagnostics-TriPath).
