Liquid-based methods for collecting cervical cells and preparing them for laboratory evaluation are available.
A sample of cervical cells is collected during a Pap test. Then the cells are rinsed in a liquid vial (instead of being smeared on slides). The vials are taken to the laboratory, and a thin layer of the specimen is put on slides for microscopic examination. Only a small portion of the sample is used for the slide, so the remainder of the cell sample can be used for any further testing, such as a human papillomavirus (HPV) test.
