Cytyc (Marlborough, Massachusetts), a provider of surgical and diagnostic products targeting women's health and cancer diagnostics, reported a multi-year contract extension with Laboratory Corporation of America Holdings (LabCorp; Burlington, North Carolina) for Cytyc's ThinPrep imaging system and the ThinPrep pap test.

Over the term of the contract, LabCorp will continue to implement the cervical cancer screening system throughout its extensive system of laboratories.

LabCorp introduced the ThinPrep imaging system in October 2004.

"We are pleased with physicians' adoption of Cytyc's ThinPrep Imaging System. Currently, a significant percentage of our ThinPrep Pap Test orders include a request for the image guided system," said Myla Lai-Goldman, MD, LabCorp's executive VP, chief scientific officer, and medical director.

LabCorp commercializes new diagnostic technologies. It offers clinical assays ranging from routine blood analyses to HIV and genomic testing.
