Pathology is a branch of medical science, focusing on the cause, origin and nature of diseases. It involves the examination of tissues, organs, bodily fluids, and autopsies to study and diagnose diseases. Depending on the methods used or diseases, pathology can be divided into eight areas.
Daan Gene’s liquid-based cytology (LBC) preparation systems are based on one of the areas: cytology, which focuses on the examinations of bodily fluids and tissues at the cellular level to screen and diagnose disease and help treatment decision-making. LBC requires sophisticated processing to create slides from liquid specimens. Compared with conventional technique, LBC has a significantly lower unsatisfactory rate and a higher disease detection rate of squamous epithelial lesions. LBC can be a better method of cytological follow-up of post-treated patients of cervical cancer.
