What is Cobas system?

The cobas® 6800 System is a fully automated solution with high-throughput, that can drive laboratory efficiency in a number of ways. Run up to 864 results from an eight-hour shift, and up to 1,440 results in 24-hours.* Gain up to 8 hours of walk-away time* with just 3 user interactions per run.

What is cobas HPV test?

The cobas® HPV test identifies women at risk for cervical cancer by detecting the presence of high-risk human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA in cervical samples. Persistent high-risk HPV infections can develop into precancerous lesions and, if left untreated, these lesions can progress to cervical cancer.

What is presumptive positive?

A presumptive positive result indicates that you had a marginal trace of the COVID-19 virus in your specimen. This may mean you are either very early in your COVID infection and the amount of virus is just beginning to rise, or you are later in your COVID infection and the overall amount of virus is declining.

How do you get HPV 16 18?

The main way HPV is spread is through sexual activity, including vaginal, anal, and oral sex. HPV can be spread even when an infected person has no visible signs or symptoms. The virus can also be spread by genital contact without sex, although this is not common.

What advantage S does the cobas HPV test provide to patients or clinicians compared with the tests that were in use before the cobas HPV test was approved for marketing?

The cobas HPV Test demonstrates comparable analytical performance to the HC2 test, but with a lower rate of cross-reactivity with lrHPV genotypes, and has the advantage of simultaneously providing HPV16/HPV18 identification. Human papillomavirus (HPV) is recognized as a causal agent of cervical cancer.

What does it mean to be presumptive positive for COVID-19?
