I am not aware of a specific CAP regulation/question related to the validation of the ThinPrep processor. However, there are general questions related to ensuring your devices are functioning as intended prior to using them on patient specimens. This should have been done when the device was initially setup in the lab and with the help of the manufacturer. They should help you verify that the instrument is working as designed.
