Cytodiagnosis Technical Classroom II

The pathological anatomy and cytodiagnosis laboratory features the usual tools and recreates the environment found in hospital or research centres

Spread across two spaces, the pathological anatomy and cytodiagnosis laboratory features the usual tools and recreates the environment found in hospital or research centres where biopsy or histological samples need to be processed and analysed, from the reception of the sample to its analysis and pre-diagnosis under the microscope.

The aim of this laboratory is to give students a very realistic approach to work in a histology/cytology laboratory. It has all the necessary tools for students to learn and practice all the usual processes in this type of laboratory.

The lab is exclusive to the Advanced Pathological Anatomy and Cytodiagnosis programmes, and its use is especially relevant to modules including cytological and tissue processing, general cytology and gynaecological cytology.

Of the two classrooms, one is used as a cytology room and the other as a processing laboratory.

The cytology room has 25 microscopy stations and a pentahead microscope. It also has cytological processing tools, specifically:

  • Centrifuge
  • Cytocentrifuge
  • ThinPrep (liquid medium cytology processor)

The processing room has all the necessary equipment to process routine histological tissue samples, in a more specific manner.

  • Fume hood
  • Histological dissection equipment
  • Tissue processor
  • Paraffin embedding station
  • Rotational microtomes and flotation baths
  • Manual staining equipment
  • Microscopes with image capturing system
