CONGRESS 2023 - Use of cell blocks in Cytology – Technical aspects

Last updated: 21st September 2023

The aim of this presentation is to explain the growing importance of the use of cytopathology cell blocks in the diagnostic process and how this has evolved over recent years. In the past they were used as an 'extra' to the traditional Papanicolaou and Romanowsky stains whereas now they have an essential role in providing material for ancillary testing - immunocytochemistry and molecular studies. The variety of methods of cell block preparation will be covered and why it is important that a department choses what method, or methods, are best suited to what is required from the finished result.
