Posted by on April 29, 2015 in News | 0 comments

Effective April 28, 2015 Highlands Pathology Consultants, P.C. began offering the Roche Cobas® HPV test and the Chlamydia/GC test from the ThinPrep® vial. Highlands is pleased to be the first lab in our area to offer the Roche assay which is the only FDA approved assay for simultaneously providing pooled results on 12 high-risk genotypes as well as individual results on genotypes HPV 16 and HPV 18. This will allow clinicians to more accurately determine which patients are at greatest risk for developing cervical cancer and how to triage them effectively following the latest ASCCP guidelines. For additional information regarding the new assay, contact Beth Fox at 423-323-5391. To learn more about the Roche Cobas® HPV test, visit
