Unsatisfactory Thin Prep Pap Results and Lubricant Usage for Collection

 

 

  

If you have collected a biopsy (cervical, vaginal, cervical polyp, etc.) and a ThinPrep® pap specimen on a patient on the same day, in order to facilitate correlation of the results of ThinPrep® pap tests and biopsy specimens, the ThinPrep® specimen should be submitted in a STAT Biohazard specimen bag to allow prioritization of the pap test.
