2024 ASCCP Guidelines empower you to use


Learn more

The BD Onclarity™ HPV Assay is the only FDA-approved HPV test that meets all ASCCP extended genotyping guidelines.1*

With the extended genotyping guidelines now confirmed and the ASCCP App update underway, make sure that your clinic and laboratory has access to this new technology supported by the ASCCP.

What do the 2024 ASCCP Guidelines say?

The 2024 ASCCP Enduring Risk-Based Management Guidelines aim to integrate new technologies and approaches that improve cancer prevention for high-risk individuals and decrease unnecessary procedures in lower-risk individuals.1

Extended genotyping is defined as the identification of individual types or groups of types beyond just HPV 16, 18 and 45. The new 2024 guidelines include HPV genotyping beyond HPV 16/18, to include management recommendations for HPV 31, 45, 33/58, 52, 35/39/68, 51 and 59/56/66.1

BD Onclarity™ HPV Assay is the first FDA-approved assay with extended genotyping to be cited in guidelines for the clinical management of a positive HPV test result.1*

Extended genotyping provides a greater and more refined level of risk stratification than pooled HPV-positive results to more precisely determine patient management.1-3

HPV persistence (repeated detection of the same HPV type) is associated with a higher risk of cervical precancer compared to a single time point detection.1,4,5

Unnecessary procedures can be safely decreased in lower-risk individuals who test positive for HPV 56/59/66.1

The attribution of some HPV types to cancer differs somewhat across populations with different ancestry, emphasizing that extended genotyping supports health equity in a unique way.1,6,7

Why change TO BD Onclarity™ HPV Assay, now?


With BD Onclarity™ HPV Assay you can do more for your patients, without having to change your habits in cervical cancer screening.

Offer more precise patient management

By using a test capable of individually identifying more high-risk HPV types you can more precisely determine a woman’s risk of cervical precancer and cancer compared to a test with a large, pooled "HPV Other" result – and ultimately offer your patients a more informed, personalized management strategy.2-5

Align with the most advanced guidelines

The BD Onclarity™  HPV Assay is the first FDA-approved HPV test with extended genotyping to be cited in the ASCCP Enduring Risk-Based Management Guidelines, which changes the landscape of cervical cancer screening in the United States.1
With the new ASCCP guidelines and app in place, more clinicians will seek to incorporate extended genotyping into clinical practice and more laboratories to offer extended genotyping.

Choose your preferred method

The BD Onclarity™ HPV Assay is available out of BD SurePath™ Liquid-based Pap Test and Hologic ThinPrep® Pap Test, the two most common Pap vials used by laboratories in the United States. In addition, BD Onclarity™ HPV Assay is approved for HPV primary screening, co-testing, and reflex testing for ASC-US results.9

Be prepared for the future

As clinical research advances, new data, technologies and approaches will be incorporated into guidelines and clinical practice. The BD Onclarity™ HPV Assay provides flexibility to address evolving needs of clinicians and labs.

What does it change for your patients?

Extended genotyping with BD Onclarity™ HPV Assay refines patient risk stratification and advances the way in which we screen for cervical cancer.1-5

In a primary HPV testing setting
patients positive for HPV 56/59/66 and no other carcinogenic types

--> 1-year repeat testing is recommended instead of reflex cytology1,8
With BD Onclarity™ HPV Assay, patients who test positive for HPV 56/59/66 can safely follow up in one year, minimizing unnecessary cytology.1
In a co-testing setting patients positive for HPV  56/59/66 and no other carcinogenic types

--> NILM: recommendation remains 1-year return1,8
--> ASC-US, and LSIL: 1-year return instead of colposcopy1,8
--> ASC-H, AGC, HSIL, or carcinoma remains colposcopy1,8
With BD Onclarity™ HPV Assay, patients who test positive for HPV 56/59/66 and ASC-US or LSIL cytology can safely follow up in one year, minimizing unnecessary colposcopy.1
In a primary HPV or co-testing setting
patients positive for HPV 45, 33/58, 31, 52, 35/39/68, 51 or combinations thereof, but negative for HPV 16 and HPV 18

-> Triage with cytology or dual stain (DS) is recommended1†
-> If DS-negative or NILM cytology, repeat testing in 1 year1
-> If DS-positive or cytology ASC-US, LSIL, ASC-H, AGC, HSIL, or carcinoma, colposcopy is recommended1
HPV persistence is identified as a key risk factor in cervical cancer development.1,4,5
BD Onclarity™ HPV Assay is the only FDA-approved HPV test on the market that provides a means to track HPV persistence of 6 individual high-risk HPV types to identify patients at greatest risk for cervical cancer.9-15

*There are currently two FDA-approved HPV tests with extended genotyping with different configurations. The BD Onclarity™ HPV Assay was the only FDA-approved test with extended genotyping when the evidence review for the extended genotyping guidelines started, thus rendering the guidelines tailored specifically to the BD Onclarity™ HPV Assay.1
Cintec® PLUS Cytology test is the only FDA-approved dual stain test currently available and is only indicated for use in conjunction with a positive HPV result from a cobas® HPV test.
