Testing for Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) from ThinPrep® Pap Specimens

At Dynacare, our vision is to be Canada’s health and wellness solutions leader. As part of our commitment and continuous efforts to enhance testing quality and the patient experience, Dynacare is now able to perform Nucleic Acid Amplification Testing (NAAT) for the common STIs (Chlamydia trachomatis (Chlamydia), Neisseria gonorrhoeae (Gonorrhea), Trichomonas vaginalis (Trichomonas) and Human papilloma virus (HPV) on a single Hologic® ThinPrep® liquid-based cytology (LBC) Pap specimen. Dynacare will continue to offer Chlamydia, Gonorrhea and Trichomonas NAAT on urine, vaginal and endocervical swab specimens. Health Canada has approved the use of the Aptima® HPV test on only ThinPrep® LBC specimens.
