Procedure Kit/Trays, Papanicolaou Smear

Definition : Prepackaged collections of the devices and supplies (i.e., either custom or standard kits) needed for collecting cells from the lower part of the uterus that opens at the top of the vagina (i.e., uterine cervix). Items in these kits usually include a spatula, specula, holding forceps, sponges, glass slides, and gloves. The kits are frequently supplied in supporting trays (i.e., procedure trays) consisting of a flat-bottomed receptacle with a border around the periphery supporting all the instruments and supplies needed for the procedure; the trays are usually covered or wrapped. Papanicolaou smear procedure kits and trays are intended for in-vitro detection of the presence of both premalignant and malignant cells within the cervix. They are mainly used for periodic screening of cervical cancer in hospitals and other healthcare facilities.
