Introducing QIAscreen, a new HPV PCR screening solution.


The QIAscreen HPV PCR Test is an in vitro real-time PCR-based assay for the qualitative detection of human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA of 15 (likely) (1) high-risk HPV genotypes.

QIAscreen can bolster your Rotor-Gene Q workflow, providing a menu of applications on one instrument.

QIAscreen rounds out QIAGEN’s family of PCR-based women’s health tests on the Rotor-Gene Q instrument, which include tests for C. trachomatis, N. gonorrhoeae, and T. vaginalis.  Labs can conduct a panel of women’s health tests in a more streamlined and resourceful manner to provide comprehensive insights for clinicians and patients.

In addition, QIAscreen has several unique features:

  • Total HR-HPV Detection

    QIAscreen detects 15 HPV types: 14 identified high-risk HPV types (16, 18, 31, 33, 35, 39, 45, 51, 52, 56, 58, 59, 66, 68) and 1 likely high-risk HPV type (67).
  • Unique HPV targeting

    QIAscreen is an HPV PCR test targeting the E7 gene. The viral E6/E7 region is invariably retained in integrated viral genomes in cervical cancers (2).
  • Compatible with self sampling

    QIAscreen was validated for many sample types, including physician-taken samplings and self sampling (i.e. lavage and brush)
  • Flexible workflow

    QIAscreen’s open-ended sample extraction works with all common methods, such as the QIAsymphony system.
