The Doctors Laboratory (TDL), in London, is the first UK recipient of the ThinPrep Imaging System (TIS), developed by Cytyc (Marlborough, Massachusetts) to support its ThinPrep Pap cervical screening test, it was announced today. The TDL contract with Crawley, West Sussex-based Cytyc UK is for five years. During that period, TDL expects to perform some 200,000 imaged ThinPrep tests. The centre, which claims to be the UK's largest independent sector clinical pathology service, began to use ThinPrep in June 2000. TDL consultant pathologist Dr Colin Clelland described the TIS as a "reliable and most beneficial aid for rapid accurate interpretation of ThinPrep cervical cytology".
