Rovers Medical Devices has engineered a new Pap smear collection device which combines the important features of the original Cervex-Brush® with the benefits of the EndoCervex-Brush®. The convenient Cervex-Brush® Combi provides doctors and nurses the option of a simultaneous Pap smear collection with a single device insertion. The Cervex-Brush® Combi will collect both ectocervical and endocervical cells from patients.
Initial studies with the Cervex-Brush® Combi resulted in favorable collection efficiencies. There were almost twice as many abnormal smears detected when sampling was done using the Cervex-Brush® Combi as with the Cervex-Brush®. The Rovers® Cervex-Brush® Combi should not be used during pregnancy.
