  • Patent number: 10633709
    Abstract: An apparatus and a method for diagnosing a tumor are provided. A histogram generating section generates a histogram from a result of a measurement of fluorescence intensity of a suspension produced from a target sample. The histogram indicates a relation between the fluorescence intensity and the number of cells. A determination section detects an S phase fluorescence intensity range corresponding to S phase cells based on the fluorescence intensity corresponding to a peak of the number of cells in the histogram, detects an abnormal fluorescence intensity range corresponding to tumor cells, based on a change in the number of cells in the S phase fluorescence intensity range, and performs a diagnosis of a tumor in the target sample based on an index of the number of cells in a range defined by excluding the abnormal fluorescence intensity range from the S phase fluorescence intensity range.
