Cytodiagnosis Technical Classroom I

Carry out a range of activities from basic biomedical laboratory techniques to typical molecular biology techniques.

The Cytodiagnosis Technical Classroom I is a work space designed to train future technicians in pathological anatomy and cytodiagnosis through practical activities in an environment similar to that found in a hospital pathological anatomy lab. It enables students to carry out a range of activities from basic biomedical laboratory techniques to typical molecular biology techniques.

In the Cytodiagnosis Technical Classroom I, students acquire essential professional skills related to:

  • Equipment and working standards in a biomedical laboratory
  • Preparing reagents and dissolutions
  • Measurement techniques
  • Acid/base valuations
  • Instruments and their use: pipettes, micropipettes, volumetric instruments, weighing instruments, etc.
  • Molecular biology techniques: electrophoresis, PCR
  • Optical microscope: handling, visualisation and maintenance
  • Microscopy techniques: staining and image interpretation
  • Microbiology: stains, cultures and antibiogram
  • Separation technique
  • Cell cultures
  • Immunological techniques: ELISA test, blood group determination, etc.
  • Spectrophotometric techniques

At present, this lab is used to train students studying Advanced Vocational Training in Anatomical Pathology and Cytodiagnosis in years one and two.

Available resources:

  • General area: fireproof cabinets for reagents, specific instrument cabinets, scales, vortex, microcentrifuge
  • Sterilisation and conservation area: water purifier, autoclave, refrigerators and freezers
  • Cell culture area: incubators, hotplates
  • Microscopy area: 20 microscopes, Leica, one with adapted camera, staining cells
  • Molecular technique area: micropipettes, thermal cycler (PCR), electrophoresis system, spectrophotometer
