The 23-page report, published last month and now available online via the PASA website (www.pasa.nhs.uk), "provides information on the reliability and performance" of the Hologic ThinPrep 3000 Laboratory Slide Processor and BD PrepStain Slide Processor. The summary of the report, which features a chapter on comparative data, notes that the former "incurred greater downtime and also a higher number of engineer visits" than the latter.
