The NOVAprep® unique vi­als and pre­ser­vat­ive me­dia are de­signed to op­tim­ize the cel­lu­lar ma­ter­i­al re­quired for cyto­logy and mo­lec­u­lar tests. The unique pre­ser­vat­ive solu­tion main­tains the cel­lu­lar in­teg­rity of the sample by keeping the cel­lu­lar sus­pen­sion, and not­ably the red blood cells, in­tact. The sample is in the same state when ana­lyzed as it was when it was col­lec­ted. The cap is unique as it will auto­mat­ic­ally re­seal it­self fol­low­ing punc­ture.&nb­sp;The sample there­fore re­mains isol­ated from ex­tern­al mi­cro-particles (vir­uses, bac­teria, spores, etc.).

The NOVAprep® HQ+ Or­ange Vi­als are leak-proof con­tain­ers in­ten­ded for hu­man sample fix­a­tion and trans­port­a­tion. The NOVAprep® HQ+ Or­ange Vi­als can be used for pre­ser­va­tion of gyneco­lo­gic­al (Gyn) and non-gyneco­lo­gic­al (Non-Gyn) samples.

NOVAPREP HQ + Orange Vial

NOVAprep® HQ+ Orange Vials for Gyn samples

In gyneco­logy, NOVAprep® HQ+ Or­ange Vi­al is mainly used for cer­vic­al screen­ing (smear test). The NOVAprep® HQ+ Or­ange Vi­al can be iden­ti­fied by its or­ange cap which holds cer­vic­al samples and util­izes the in­teg­rated cell ex­trac­tion sys­tem to en­hance the num­ber of cells col­lec­ted from the cer­vix. The unique design in­cludes a col­lec­tion mesh with a rough sur­face to re­move the cells from the brush.&nb­sp; To fur­th­er en­hance the re­lease of cells from the brush, there is a fea­ture in the vi­al that fa­cil­it­ates the re­mov­al of the head of the samp­ling brush which min­im­izes the loss of the sample.

Preparation and collection of gynecological samples

  • Insert the central bristles of the brush into the endocervical canal to place the lateral bristles in contact with the junction (transformation zone) and the ectocervix.
