Cytyc Corp has signed a multi-year extension with Laboratory Corp of America Holdings for Cytyc’s ThinPrep Imaging System and ThinPrep Pap Test. The company also has a multi-year deal with Quest Diagnostics for the ThinPrep Pap Test.
LabCorp will continue to implement the cervical cancer screening system throughout its nationwide system of laboratories as it has since October 2004.
The ThinPrep Imaging System is a fully integrated, interactive computer system that assists cytotechnologists and pathologists in the primary screening and diagnosis of the company’s Pap test slides. Quest will evaluate the imaging system at select lab sites. It is one of many products from the company’s line focusing on women’s health.
