Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology- Prepared 6 Slides Test

450 د.إ

-25%

Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) is a diagnostic procedure used to investigate lumps or masses in various parts of the body. This minimally invasive technique involves using a thin, hollow needle to extract small amounts of tissue or fluid from the suspicious area. The collected sample is then prepared onto slides for microscopic examination. The “Prepared 6 Slides Test” specifically refers to the preparation of six different slides from the aspirated material to ensure a comprehensive analysis, enhancing the accuracy of the diagnosis.

At DNA Labs UAE, this test is offered for a cost of 450 AED. The facility employs advanced cytological techniques and experienced cytologists to interpret the samples. The FNAC test at DNA Labs UAE is a reliable method for the initial evaluation of tumors, cysts, or other abnormal masses, providing critical information that can guide further diagnostic or therapeutic procedures. It is a quick, outpatient procedure with minimal discomfort, making it a preferred choice for patients and physicians alike.

Test Details

Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) is a diagnostic procedure used to collect a sample of cells from a suspicious lump or mass in the body. The collected cells are then examined under a microscope to determine if they are benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous).

To prepare 6 slides for FNAC, the following steps are typically followed:

  1. Gather the necessary equipment: This includes a fine needle (usually 21 or 22 gauge), a syringe, glass slides, a fixative solution (such as 95% ethanol), and a staining solution (such as May-Grnwald-Giemsa or Papanicolaou stain).
  2. Position the patient: The patient is positioned in a way that allows easy access to the suspicious lump or mass. The area is usually cleaned with an antiseptic solution.
  3. Local anesthesia: A local anesthetic may be administered to numb the area to minimize discomfort during the procedure.
  4. Needle insertion: The fine needle is inserted into the suspicious lump or mass and multiple passes are made to collect an adequate sample of cells. The needle is typically moved back and forth or rotated within the mass to ensure cell collection.
  5. Sample preparation: After the needle is withdrawn, the collected cells are expelled from the needle into a fixative solution. The solution helps preserve the cells and prevents them from drying out.
  6. Slide preparation: Using a glass slide, a drop of the fixative solution containing the cells is placed on the slide. Another slide is then used to spread the cells evenly across the surface of the first slide. This is repeated for each of the 6 slides.
  7. Fixation: The slides are allowed to air dry or may be fixed by dipping them in a fixative solution. This step helps to preserve the cells and prevents them from being washed off during subsequent staining.
  8. Staining: Once the slides are dry, they are stained using a staining solution. The staining helps to enhance the visibility of the cells and their specific characteristics. Different staining techniques may be used depending on the laboratory’s protocols and the suspected diagnosis.
  9. Microscopic examination: The stained slides are then examined under a microscope by a pathologist or cytotechnologist. They look for any abnormal cellular features or patterns that may indicate the presence of cancer or other diseases.

It’s important to note that the number of slides prepared may vary depending on the specific case and the laboratory’s requirements. Additionally, the procedure should always be performed by a trained healthcare professional to ensure accurate sample collection and preparation.
