Introduction to the discipline cellular pathology with focus on basic techniques in theory and practice: preparations of cells and tissue for light microscope, processing and microtomy, staining theory, staining methods and normal cervical cytology. The course includes an interdisciplinary approach to immunological techniques: basic theory and practice, antibodies as an analytical tool, important methods used to analyse different biological samples (fluids, cells and tissue). Troubleshooting and quality assessment of application methods, interpretation of the results, will be emphasized.
The student should be able to: -describe the core competencies, duties and responsibilities in the discipline anatomic pathology for Biomedical Laboratory Scientist (Bioingeniør): explain and use scientific terms to: describe the processes involved in preparations of cells and tissue to be examined by light microscope -describe and draw figures of the principles of immunological methods - describe the theoretical principles of detection- and metric methods -suggest possible sources that may affect the quality of the results and explain why ( key principles, performance, results) -Recognize and describe the morphology of normal cells in pictures of gynecologic (cervix) cell preparations.
