Chromatin is a complex of macromolecules found in cells, consisting of DNA, protein, and RNA.
A cilium (the plural is cilia) is an organelle found in eukaryotic cells.
A counterstain is a stain with colour contrasting to the principal stain, making the stained structure easily visible using a microscope.
Cyto-Stain, or CytoStain, is commercially available mix of staining dyes for polychromatic staining in histology.
Cytopathology (from Greek κύτος, kytos, "a hollow"; πάθος, pathos, "fate, harm"; and -λογία, -logia) is a branch of pathology that studies and diagnoses diseases on the cellular level.
In cell biology, the cytoplasm is the material within a living cell, excluding the cell nucleus.

In the fields of histology, pathology, and cell biology, fixation is the preservation of biological tissues from decay due to autolysis or putrefaction.
Georgios Nikolaou Papanikolaou (or George Papanicolaou; Γεώργιος Ν. Παπανικολάου; 13 May 1883 – 19 February 1962) was a Greek pioneer in cytopathology and early cancer detection, and inventor of the "Pap smear".
Glycogen is a multibranched polysaccharide of glucose that serves as a form of energy storage in humans, animals, fungi, and bacteria.
Gynaecology or gynecology (see spelling differences) is the medical practice dealing with the health of the female reproductive systems (vagina, uterus, and ovaries) and the breasts.
Hematoxylin and eosin stain or haematoxylin and eosin stain (H&E stain or HE stain) is one of the principal stains in histology.

Lymphoma is a group of blood cancers that develop from lymphocytes (a type of white blood cell).
A mordant or dye fixative is a substance used to set (i.e. bind) dyes on fabrics by forming a coordination complex with the dye, which then attaches to the fabric (or tissue).
The nucleolus (plural nucleoli) is the largest structure in the nucleus of eukaryotic cells.
Orange G or orange gelb is a synthetic azo dye used in histology in many staining formulations.
The Papanicolaou test (abbreviated as Pap test, also known as Pap smear, cervical smear, or smear test) is a method of cervical screening used to detect potentially pre-cancerous and cancerous processes in the cervix (opening of the uterus or womb).
