HPV High Risk in situ hybridization (ISH) assay is intended to identify the presence of transcriptionally active mRNA E6/E7 from High-Risk types of Human papillomavirus (HR-HPV) in routinely processed tissue sections using RNA probes. The probe cocktail targets the presence of HPV 16,18,26,31,33,35,39,45,51,52,53,56,58,59,66,68,73 and 82, E6/E7 mRNA.
