Cytology is concerned with samples of single cells and small cell clusters that have been detached from a tissue structure, in contrast to histology, which is concerned with larger tissue samples or surgical specimens.

Cytodiagnostics is a rapid, precise, inexpensive and effective method whose main objective is to detect or rule out inflammatory, neoplastic or malignant cells.
