Biopsy Categories:

  • Gastroenterology

  • Breast

  • Dermatology

  • Gynecologic

  • Urology 

Anatomic Surgical Pathology
 

X-Cell offers liquid-based cytology and conventional cytology methods for the analysis of pap smear specimens.

  • ThinPrep Pap Test

  • SurePath Pap Test

  • Conventional Pap Smear

Gynecologic Cytology

X-Cell offers different methodologies for the processing and analysis of non-gynecologic specimen types.

  • Fine Needle Aspiration

  • Urine Cytology

Non-Gynecological Cytology
 
 

X-Cell provides a variety of molecular diagnostic tests which can be ordered in conjunction with pap smear analysis.  Utilizing molecular techniques can aid in the diagnosis and treatment of infectious, genetic, and toxicological diseases.

Molecular Diagnostics
  • Human Papillomavirus (HPV)

  • HPV 16/18 Genotyping

  • Chlamydia trachomatis

  • Neisseria gonorrhoeae

  • Trichomonas vaginalis

  • Vaginitis Panel

    • Trichomonas

    • Gardnerella

    • Candida species

 

Hematopathology is a division of pathology that deals with diseases of the blood and blood-forming organs.  X-Cell specializes in the diagnosis of hematologic diseases using morphologic, cytochemical, and immunophenotypic analysis of several types of specimens.

Hematopathology categories:

  • Bone marrow aspirates

  • Bone marrow clots

  • Core bone biopsies

  • Peripheral blood

  • Lymph nodes

Hematopathology

Immunohistochemistry (IHC) can be used in conjunction with histopathology to help define or categorize a diagnosis.  X-Cell can provide special stains and antibodies that can be ordered after initial examination of a tissue specimen.

  • 75+ Antibodies

  • 20+ Select Tumor Panels

Immunohistochemistry

X-Cell offers malignant leukocyte immunophenotyping using several leukemia and lymphoma panels by flow cytometry. Immunophenotypic analysis of white blood cells can aid in distinguishing between non-neoplastic and malignant disease states.  Flow cytometry is performed as an ancillary test to help diagnose and characterize disease entities such as acute leukemias, lymphoproliferative disorders, myeloid neoplasms, and plasma cell dyscrasias.

  • Peripheral blood

  • Bone marrow

  • Tissue

  • Body fluid

Flow Cytometry

FISH testing is done on breast tissue removed during a surgical procedure to see if the cells have extra copies of the Her2 gene.

Fluorescent In Situ Hybridization (FISH)
 
 
 
 

X-Cell offers cytogenetic testing using chromosome analysis.  Karyotypes can be done to detect chromosome abnormalities that can be found in congenital or various neoplastic and cancer processes.  Prenatal, perinatal, and cancer testing can be done on:

  • Amniotic fluids

  • Products of conception

  • Peripheral blood

  • Bone marrow
