SERVICEClinical Testing for Cytopathology



The testing utilizes the latest technologies to provide the most accurate results.

Cytopathology is a branch of pathology that deals with manifestations of disease at the cellular level. This is a field that is gaining tremendous momentum all over the world due to its speed, accuracy and cost effectiveness.


  1. Diagnostic aid as an alternative to tissue biopsy that drives treatment decisions.

2. As a screening tool; For eg, Pap smear for cervical cancer screening

3. As a follow-up for different diseases once an initial diagnosis has been made

4. For determination of different prognostic factors in cancer diagnosis

Exfoliative cytology

The samples represent cells that exfoliate from superficial or mucosal surfaces. This includes:

  • Gynecological samples: Eg; Pap smear samples for Cervical cancer screening, HPV testing etc
  • Respiratory/exfoliative cytology: Eg; Sputum samples, Bronchoalveolar lavage etc
  • Urine sample
  • Body fluid: Eg; pleural fluid, pericardial fluid, peritoneal fluid, and cerebrospinal fluid  etc
  • Discharge cytology: Eg; Discharge from wound site, Nipple discharge etc
  • Scrape cytology: Eg; Skin scraping



Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC)

  • This is a simple technique to obtain diagnostic cellular/ tissue material using a fine bore needle. It is safe, relatively easy, accurate and in many cases can be a less invasive alternative to tissue biopsy.

LIST OF ALLFrequently Asked Questions

What Is A Pap Test?

A Pap test (also known as a Pap Smear) is a test for cervical cancer. It is one of the most important gynecology tests a woman should have on a regular basis to keep healthy. In an examination room, the doctor gently swabs a tiny sample of cells from the patient’s cervix (the opening of the uterus). The sample is then sent to a lab to test for any abnormal cells. Abnormal cells do not mean the patient has cervical cancer, but further tests may be needed.

Who Should Get A Pap Test?

All women ages 21-29 years old should get a Pap Test every 3 years. Women 30-65 should get a PAP Test and HPV Test every five years or a PAP Test alone every three years. Women over 65 do not need a PAP screening.
