Use to detect low-risk HPV subtypes. Preferred test to determine potential cancer risk is Human Papillomavirus (HPV) High Risk by in situ Hybridization, Paraffin (3002008).
In situ Hybridization
Formalin fix (10 percent neutral buffered formalin) and paraffin embed tissue. Transport tissue block or 5 unstained positively charged, 5-micron slides in a tissue transport kit (recommended but not required) (ARUP supply #47808) available online through eSupply using ARUP Connect™ or contact ARUP Client Services at (800) 522-2787. (Min: 4 slides) Protect paraffin block and/or slides from excessive heat.
Room temperature. Also acceptable: Refrigerated. Ship in cooled container during summer months.

Include surgical pathology report.
Ambient: Indefinitely; Refrigerated: Indefinitely; Frozen: Unacceptable
