The Papanicolaou test (abbreviated as Pap test, known earlier as Pap smear, cervical smear, or smear test) is a method of cervical screening used to detect potentially pre-cancerous and cancerous processes in the cervix . Abnormal findings are often followed up by more sensitive diagnostic procedures, and, if warranted, interventions that aim to prevent progression to cervical cancer. The person may also be referred for HPV DNA testing, which can serve as an adjunct to Pap testing. Additional biomarkers which may be applied as ancillary tests with the Pap test are evolving.
1. Pap Smear /FNAC are admixed with mucus/blood.
2. Multi layering of cells obscures diagnostic field.
3. Cellular morphology very often changes during collection and transport to the laboratory
4. Repetition of sample collection,hence patients are called many times collecting samples.
To overcome these problems, liquid based cytology technique is a necessary welcome. It is being adopted in many countries for Gynae /Non Gynae samples, LBC is strongly advocated in the best interest of public health, by improving the quality of the samples and reducing the likelihood of the false negative cytology results.Thus liquid based cytology improve the early detection and treatment of cervical cancer.
Liquid-based cytology is a method of preparing samples for examination in cytopathology. The sample is collected, normally by a small brush, in the same way as for a conventional smear test, but rather than the smear being transferred directly to a microscope slide, the sample is deposited into a small bottle of preservative liquid. At the laboratory the liquid is treated to remove other elements such as mucus before a layer of cells is placed on a slide. The technique allows more accurate results.
“Pap Smear is sub optimal due to false positive and false negative results”
“Liquid based cytology is More sensitive and specific compared with conventional pap smear”
ABOUT EZIPREP - The Most Economical Liquid Based Cytology in the world
EZIPREP Liquid based cytology provides an optimal combination of mono layer of cells and cellular slide adhesion and preservation of cytology cells. This will be helpful for more effective examination and diagnosis. Our patent pending mono layer formula was developed after years of research. EZIPREP is the only double smear liquid based cytology in the world. Its Double smear technology value adds the diagnostic accuracy twice as that of the single smear liquid based cytology products. Dual smear gives duplication of cells on the same slide. EZIPREP works on the basic principle of “Surface Adsorption by RCF”. EZIPREP is available for all type of fluids includes, (a) Gynae Specimen (b) Non Gynae Specimens (c) FNAC
