Interpretive Data
This test amplifies DNA of HPV16 and HPV18. Laboratories should collect and transport specimens according to the instructions of FDA-approved kits (ThinPrep medium).

Sensitivity may be affected by specimen collection methods, stage of infection, and the presence of interfering substances. Results should be interpreted in conjunction with other available laboratory and clinical data. A negative HPV16 and/or HPV18 result does not exclude the presence of other high-risk HPV types, the possibility of future cytologic abnormalities, or underlying CIN2-3 or cancer.

This test is intended for medical purposes only and is not valid for the evaluation of suspected sexual abuse or for other forensic purposes. HPV testing should not be used for screening or management of atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance (ASCUS) in women under age 21.

Compliance Statement B: 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.
