APTIMA HPV High Risk

To identify high-risk HPV infections by targeting E6/E7 mRNA. Studies show that targeting E6/E7 mRNA identifies the presence and activity of a high-risk HPV infection. The APT HPV ASSEY represents the next generation in cervical screening – allowing clinicians to deliver maximum benefit to patients, while minimizing potential harm.

The APT HPV ASSEY identifies patients at greatest risk of developing cervical cancer, delivering the same excellent sensitivity to minimize false negative results. The APT HPV ASSEY demonstrates the same excellent sensitivity as DNA-based HPV tests innumerous clinical studies involving over 50,000 women worldwide.

APTIMA COMBO2 FOR CT/NG ASSAY

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that only 38% of sexually active young women are screened annually for chlamydia in the United States and that up to 75% of CT infected women are asymptomatic contributing to as many as 30% of CT infections progressing to pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) which has been shown to cause permanent damage to a woman’s reproductive system including infertility, chronic pelvic pain and ectopic pregnancy.

FETAL FIBRONECTIN TEST : fFN

The fFN test presents a more reliable method of determining the likelihood of preterm birth. Administered similarly to a Pap Test, the fFN test is a safe and non-invasive method of measuring fFN levels in vaginal secretions. Usually, fFN can only be detected at the beginning of pregnancy and towards full term. Detectable levels of fFN from weeks 22 to 35 of pregnancy are a strong indicator that the patient is at high risk of delivering their baby preterm.

The fFN is valuable for its role in identifying patients who are not at risk for preterm birth. Mothers whose symptoms would otherwise be addressed with medication or lying-in can avoid disruption to their daily lives.
