The SZALAY CYTO-SPATULA: The ideal cell sampler for conventional and liquid-based methods of analysis.

Case Images 1)

In each of the following examples, the SZALAY-Cyto-Spatula was used for cervical sampling. The cell material obtained in this way was then processed using either liquid-based methods of analysis (left) or conventional methods of analysis (right). The smear samples both on the left and right were obtained from the same woman.

The following case images do show that the new and very expensive "liquid based" method of analysis does not produce better results, presupposed that the Szalay Cyto-Spatula is being used to take the Pap smear. Obwegeser study
