    • Cytyc Thinprep 2000 Processor (Refurbished)

      The Cytyc ThinPrep 2000 processor is an automated slide preparation system recommended for use with the ThinPrep Pap test. In addition, the Cytyc ThinPrep 2000 processor is compatible with non-gynecological specimens that assist in diagnosing disease entities and cancers of numerous body sites obtained through exfoliative methods and fine needle aspiration.

      The Cytyc ThinPrep 2000 processor controls the dispersion, collection, and transfer of diagnostic cells from sample to slide through Hologic’s computerized process and patented membrane technology. This ensures the slide represents and reproduces the original sample collected in the ThinPrep Pap test vial.

      Under the precise control of the Cytyc ThinPrep 2000 microprocessor, a gentle dispersion step breaks up blood, mucus, and non-diagnostic debris, and then thoroughly mixes the sample. A series of negative pressure pulses draws fluid through the Cytyc ThinPrep 2000 filter to collect a thin, even layer of diagnostic cellular material. The ThinPrep 2000 processor constantly monitors the flow rate through the filter during this process, collecting an appropriate amount of material for testing.

      The cellular material is transferred to a glass slide using computer-controlled mechanical positioning and positive air pressure. The slide is then ejected into a cell fixative bath, ready for staining and evaluation.

      FEATURES

      The Cytyc ThinPrep 2000 processor utilizes mechanical, pneumatic, and fluidic principles for cell dispersion, collection, and transfer.

      Dispersion:

      • A rotary drive mechanism gently disperses samples.

      Collection:

      • A pneumatic/fluid system, controlled by a microprocessor, monitors cell collection.

      Transfer:

      • Computer-controlled position and positive air pressure facilitate the transfer of cells to the ThinPrep microscope slide
