This test amplifies DNA of HPV16, HPV18 and 12 other high-risk HPV types (31, 33, 35, 39, 45, 51, 52, 56, 58, 59, 66, and 68) associated with cervical cancer and its precursor lesions. 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 high-risk HPV result does not exclude the presence of other high-risk HPV types, the possibility of future cytologic abnormalities, 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.
