Lab Technology: Hologic Gen-Probe Panther

Hologic Panther System

All molecular testing is now performed on the Hologic Panther System. In September of 2012, TML acquired the Hologic Panther System with all samples pre-aliquoted by the Hologic Tomcat. The Panther is a fully-automated, random access sampling instrument which is FDA approved to perform Aptima CT/NG testing, Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhea Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAATS).

A single one milliliter aliquot from a patient’s Thin Prep Pap Test vial can be tested for up to six different assays simultaneously on the Panther. FDA approval is currently pending for the Aptima HPV test.
