Co-testing with Pap and HPV together for superior detection of risk versus either test alone1-3

Making sure that your patients are screened for cervical cancer is a critical component of their overall health. A recent study demonstrated that co-testing with Pap and HPV together has consistently and repeatedly identified more cases of precancer and cancer than either Pap or HPV testing alone.3 A more accurate look at the risk of cervical cancer for women ages 30 to 65 starts with co-testing—a Pap test plus an HPV test on the same sample.
