Cervical cancer is the second most common type of cancer in women (the first being breast cancer) with an estimated 12,000+ new cases and more than 4,000 deaths in the US each year. It has been shown that cervical cancer has a close tie to HPV (Human papillomavirus, shown here). There are 14 high-risk HPV types; the two most common (HPV types 16 and 18) cause approximately 70% of cervical cancers. Therefore, developing a quick, early, and easy way to detect high-risk HPV is critical for women’s healthcare.
QuanDx’s MeltPro High-Risk HPV Genotyping Assay (Multi-Color Melting Curve Analysis) is qualitative in vitro test used for HPV genotyping and cervical cancer screening. This test uses PCR followed by high-resolution melting curve analysis for the detection of 14 high-risk HPV types. High-risk HPV subtypes can be differentiated in one single reaction.
This assay has been widely validated in clinical labs (see the References below for the details).
