Introduction

Our division committed to clients for personalized diagnostics services which bring together state-of-the-art technologies and highly trained personnel. Towards diagnosis technology up-gradation, we often do perform our diagnosis protocol/technical collaborative validation with distinguished laboratories in China and around the world. Jing-Meng’s Anatomic Pathology division also combines our testing capabilities of a fully accredited laboratory with the resources of an academic and teaching institution.


Consultation and second opinions are provided in all areas of pathology, including bone and joint, breast diseases, cytopathology, dermatopathology, endocrine, GI and hepatic diseases, genitourinary, gynecologic, head and neck diseases, hematopathology, neuropathology, pediatric, pulmonary, renal, and soft-tissue diseases.

The section of Anatomic Pathology is composed of:

  1. Anatomic Records
  2. Cytopathology
  3. Histopathology
  4. Immunopathology

Anatomic Pathology Records

Anatomic Pathology Records assists with report preparation, transcription, distribution, and filing of final Surgical Pathology and Autopsy reports. This area provides custodial oversight for all archived tissue slides and fields requests for materials and information (pathology slides and reports) from both patients and physicians. JM records are also responsible for the coordination of pathology materials for interdepartmental and intradepartmental conferences.

Cytopathology Laboratory

Cytopathology is a multifaceted laboratory performing service, education, and scholarly work. The service area of the laboratory is responsible for the cytological preparation, staining and microscopic examination of patient samples. The cytological samples may be used for screening (cervical-vaginal), a diagnosis (FNA), or (when a cytology is performed in conjunction with a surgical procedure) improving the overall diagnostic accuracy (brushes, washes).

Histopathology Laboratory

The Histopathology Laboratory offers a comprehensive program of histology services. The laboratory provides routine surgical tissue processing, embedding, section, and cytochemical staining in preparation for review by house staff and faculty pathologists.

Immunopathology Laboratory

The Immunopathology Laboratory performs several categories of diagnostic testing including autoimmune disease serologies, flow cytometry, immunohistochemistry, immunofluorescence microscopy, immunofixation, and high-resolution agarose electrophoresis. Autoimmune disease serologies include screening for diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), Sjogren's syndrome, scleroderma, Wegner's granulomatosis and related vasculitis’s, autoimmune hepatitis, primary biliary cirrhosis, ulcerative colitis, celiac disease, and others. Testing methodologies used include enzyme immunoassay, indirect immunofluorescence microscopy, and immunodiffusion.

Flow cytometry is done on bone marrow, peripheral blood, fine needle aspirations, miscellaneous body fluids, lymph nodes, and tumors. Flow cytometry has a wide range of uses from typing lymphomas and leukemias to quantitation of lymphocyte subsets in suspected immunodeficiency diseases.

Immunohistochemical staining is done primarily on formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissues using automated staining equipment (immunostainers). A large number of antibodies are available to immunophenotype and identify the source and types of tumors and to detect certain infectious agents (particularly viruses) in tissue sections. In-situ hybridization studies are also performed to identify certain types of infections, particularly Epstein-Barr virus.

Immunofluorescence microscopy is done on frozen sections of skin, kidney, lymph node, and tumors. It is used both to diagnose autoimmune diseases of the skin, mucosae, and the kidney and to immunophenotype lymphoid proliferations and several other types of tumors.
