    COMM: "Your are looking at living cancer cells taken from a patient....



    .....doctors at Roswell Park Institute are testing the cells' reaction to drugs"



    ...a tedious job until it was discovered that television could help..



    The device is called the Cyto Tally



    it takes a television picture of the cells



    ...and then scans the picture electronically...displaying the cell count on a tape...



    ....similar to those on adding machines



    ....doctors at Roswell Park Institute are working with the first cell counters....



    they found them so useful...



    ..in research and having labour costs



    ..expect the electronic cell counter to be pressed into service...across the country




    Initials
