Automated cervical cancer sample preparation

A walk-away automated system for cervical cancer slide preparation, ThinPrep 5000 is capable of processing up to 20 gynaecological (or general cytology) slides per batch utilising ThinPrep technology for dispersion, collection and transfer of cells. During dispersion the sample vial is spun to separate debris and mucus and to randomise the cells. These are then collected on the exterior surface of the Pap test filter with the help of a vacuum and software that monitors the rate of flow. Finally the cells are transferred to a defined circular area on a microscope slide for examination. Thirty-five slides can be processed per hour.
