BCL has partnered with Hologic, a global leader in women’s healthcare products, invalidating the Panther Instrument, enabling BCL to diagnose for cytology, HPV, HPV16/18, chlamydia, gonorrhea, and trichomonas from one ThinPrep® pap vial. This allows for easy collection, highly sensitive testing at high throughput for fast and accurate diagnosis.

You no longer need to wait 7-14 days to receive cytology results, as the Panther allows for faster turnaround times for all necessary testing, minimizing patient stress while awaiting their results.
