Processing Paps with industry-leading standards

ThinPrep Pap Test strips

Paps are an important part of your practice, so they are a priority for us

We double-screen Paps from any patient that you indicate as high risk, and initial abnormal diagnoses are reviewed by a pathologist so you can feel confident in the superior accuracy of our results. Our quality control standards meet and often exceed all state and federal requirements.

Our daily pathology reviews leverage collective expertise

Reviewing Paps in a way that reduces subjectivity requires both highly qualified experts and the toughest quality control processes. Our highly trained pathologists meet every day to simultaneously review your most challenging cases, helping us to provide results you can trust.
