The screening test examines the cells which are passed into the urine from the bladder. The test uses these epithelial cells known as urinary sediment, which have been shed into urine and are collected for testing.
On returning the urine sample to Severn Biotech the Cells are separated from the urinary sediment, they then undergo a staining regime to prepare a microscope slide ready for analysis. This is then screened by experienced cytologists using light microscopy.
