Interpretive Data
This test detects: Low-risk HPV (genotypes: 6,11) and high-risk HPV (genotypes: 16, 18, 31, 33, 35, 39, 45, 51, 52, 56, 58, 66).

A negative result does not rule out the presence of an HPV genotype absent from the test panel, a low level infection, or specimen sampling error.

Compliance Statement A: Analyte specific reagents (ASR) are used in many laboratory tests necessary for standard medical care and generally do not require U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval or clearance. This test was developed and its performance characteristics determined by ARUP Laboratories. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has not approved or cleared this test; however, FDA clearance or approval is not currently required for clinical use. The results are not intended to be used as the sole means for clinical diagnosis or patient management decisions. This test should not be regarded as investigational or for research use.
