This image depicts a long, thin tapered pipette tip laced into the screw cap vial with a small but representative sample of a patient's pancreatic cyst fluid.  The tip has aspirated up a small aliquot of the fluid which will then be submitted and tested by detailed mutational analysis in an advanced laboratory.
Assessing multiple tumor suppressor and oncogene DNA abnormalities, the test combines analysis of DNA and clinical features of pancreatic cysts to stratify patients for risk of pancreatic adenocarcinoma.
