  • Description

    Blow the cobwebs from your microscope! Get the most out of your haematology samples in-house, and take your cytology skills of lumps and bumps and ear swabs further. A day of seminars and case based practical sessions at the microscope to discover how much more you can glean from your haematology and cytology specimens.

    Blood smears examination is a cornerstone of laboratory diagnostic investigation. Become proficient at making and examining blood smears to validate and expand on the findings of your automated analyser.

    Cytology is a rapid and helpful tool in the diagnosis of cutaneous and subcutaneous masses. Develop a pragmatic and consistent approach to cytology of lumps and bumps to guide your approach to these lesions. The day also includes a session on ear cytology and how to get the most out of your microbiological testing.

    Topics to be covered include:

    • Making and evaluating blood smears
    • Cytology of cutaneous and subcutaneous masses
    • Ear cytology and microbiological testing
