New! HPV Detection from Self-Collected Samples

SYNLAB GenoID Molecular Diagnostic Laboratory has started to offer the new CONFIDENCE™ HPV test (Neumann Diagnostics) of Qvintip® self-collected vaginal samples.

Until recently, HPV sample collection has only been possible as a part of a gynaecological examination. However, from now on it is available to patients as well, with the use of a self-sampling device.
The latest European guidelines recommend the self-sampling test primarily for women who cannot or do not wish to participate in gynaecological screening for any reason. An advantage of the self-sampling test is that more positive HPV cases can be identified than earlier so detection and prevention of cervical cancer may become more efficient.
