Brief Summary

This proposal aims to compare the clinical performance of the cobas HPV Test using SurePath and ThinPrep preservatives. At the same time, results will be compared to those obtained with the HC2 assays when using SurePath and ThinPrep preservatives. Clinical sensitivity/specificity and positive/negative predictive values will be calculated for each test/preservative combination. Roche Linear Array HPV testing will be performed for discordant analysis and to determine infecting HPV types.
