Cellular pathology

Cellular Cervical Screening

Cellular pathology provides histopathology, diagnostic and cervical cytology, and andrology services.

The department is also the base for the London Regional Cytology Training Centre - providing all the courses and training for cytologists within the London region and beyond.

Histology is the investigation and diagnosis of disease from the microscopic examination of tissues taken during surgery or at post-mortem.

Cytology is the investigation and diagnosis of disease from the microscopic examination of isolated cells. Cytology studies the cells that can be scraped from the surfaces of tissues or the cells found naturally in fluids from anywhere in the body. We provide a service for:

  • Cytopathology screening of cervical samples
  • Analysis of semen for infertility and post-vasectomy investigations
  • Diagnostic cytopathology of body fluids, e.g. urines, sputum.

The cellular pathology service is provided in collaboration with The Doctors Laboratory Ltd.
