Pathology

The Pathology unit focuses its activity on diagnosis through biopsy (skin, endoscopy, etc.) and pieces from surgery. This unit also includes an immune-histo-chemistry laboratory.

SERVICES:

  • Anatomo-pathological diagnosis from biopsies and pieces from surgery
  • Gynaecological cytology
  • Diagnosis of general cytological samples (cytology from liquids, fine needle punction-aspiration of solid injuries, etc.)
  • File of preparations and histological blocks following current regulations
  • Macroscopic Photography
  • Microphotography


SPECIAL TECHNIQUES:
Histochemistry:

  • PAS
  • Grocott's silver-methenamine
  • Ziehl-Nielsen
  • Congo Red (amyloid)

Immuno-histo-chemistry:

  • Cell differentiation markers (cytokeratines 7, 20, Mca: 5.2,Vimentin, etc.)
  • Proliferation markers (MIB1-Ki67)

  • Lymphoid markers (CD45, CD20, CD3, CD10, etc.)
  • Hormones (Inhibin, ACTH, etc.)
  • Hormone receptors
  • c-erb-B2 (Her-2-neu)
