PreTect SEE is ideal as a quality control test for NILM cytology. It is an assay for the qualitative detection of the presence of Human Papillomavirus, HPV, E6/E7 oncogene mRNA from carcinogenic HPV types 16, 18 and 45.
PreTect SEE shows high clinical specificity, supported by a low positive rate in the general population.
This CE-IVD kit identify women that have carcinogenic expression of high-risk HPV types that may induce cervical cancer. Co-testing with PreTect SEE and Cytology will therefore improve the existing screening program sensitivity without an excessive follow-up workload.
With its high capacity and low cost the test is also ideal as stand-alone test in low-income countries.
