QIAGEN's digene HPV Test

QIAGEN's digene HPV Test is the first FDA-approved HPV test which screens for the presence or absence of 13 types of high-risk HPV that can cause abnormal cervical cells and cervical cancer. The QIAGEN digene HPV Test is based on the company’s proprietary Hybrid Capture® 2 technology. Studies show that, on average, the combination of the digene HPV Test and the Pap identifies 95-100 percent of advanced cervical disease (CIN 2, CIN 3, or cancer). For women over 30 years old, who are most at risk of cervical cancer, getting both tests provides the best assurance of finding cervical disease before it becomes cancer.
