Cytyc has become the exclusive supplier of liquid-based cytology to Ireland's laboratories, after the company's Irish distributor Screenlink clinched a deal with the remaining two laboratories that have yet to be converted to Cytyc's ThinPrep Pap test. Around 250,000 cervical cancer tests are performed in Ireland each year. Currently, 150,000 of these tests are carried out on the Marlborough, Massachusetts company's ThinPrep system. The remaining labs, based in Cork and Galway, are expected to undergo the conversion to ThinPrep in the next few months.
