Technical evaluation of the Xpert assay in general screening population

Centre for Cancer Prevention

Porject Investigator:  Professor Jack Cuzick

Funding body:  Cepheid

In a manner similar to the Predictors studies we are evaluating a new rapid result (60 minute) simple cartridge-based HPV test (Cepheid) in over 3,000 women from residual ThinPrep cervical samples taken at screening.

The test is being compared to the Roche Cobas test and the Qiagen Hybrid Capture 2 test.

Initial results have been presented and a detailed report for publication is in progress.
