Cytology Molecular Pathology Pathology PCR Testing Clinical Testing Central Billing Office


At Cytocheck Laboratory, we offer, both computer-assisted and non-computer assisted ThinPrep Pap smear screening, as well as conventional Pap smear screening.
The ThinPrep Pap screening offers an increase in ASC-US, LSIL, and HSIL detection over the conventional screen, along with a decrease in false-negative and unsatisfactory cases.
The ThinPrep Pap is the only liquid-based pap test with FDA approval to test HPV, Gonorrhea, and Chlamydia straight from the vial, eliminating the need for co-collecting.
Cytocheck also offers non-gyn cytology, including brushings, washings, fine needle aspirations, urine specimens, and breast smears.
All cytology cases are completed and resulted in 1-2 working days from receipt in the laboratory. Pathology over-reads are performed at no extra charge, along with a 15% quality control rescreening process.

PCR Testing

As women's health care specialists, we offer highly sensitive and specific Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) testing for STD's and GYN through OneSwab. Available through both the ThinPrep Pap and the OneSwab collection devices, PCR is a unique DNA amplification that gives the ability to analyze up to 20 pathogens from a single specimen. No refrigeration is required for these specimens, and results can be expected 3-4 working days from receipt in laboratory. Some examples of tests offered through PCR technology are Bacterial Vaginosis, Candida Vaginitis, Cystic Fibrosis screening, Herpes subtype, Trichomonas Vaginalis, and Vaginal Group B Strep. Microbial drug resistance is available upon request. For more information, see the
Medical Diagnostic Laboratory web site.
