Pap Smear Under the Microscope

A Pap smear is a screening procedure used to test for cervical cancer. The test looks for precancerous or cancerous cells on the cervix. The Pap smear was named after Georgios Papanikolaou, the doctor who determined that the test was a helpful way to detect cervical cancer.

This is a slide from a Pap smear that was captured under the U2D digital lab microscope at 400x magnification.
