Histology is a medical reference app that provides hundreds of histology slides to help you study the microscopic anatomy of cells and tissues of plants and animals.

Generally speaking, Histology is commonly performed by examining cells and tissues by sectioning and staining, followed by examination under a light microscope or electron microscope. Histological studies may be conducted via tissue culture, where live cells can be isolated and maintained in a proper environment outside the body for various research projects. The ability to visualize or differentially identify microscopic structures is frequently enhanced through the use of histological stains. Histology is an essential tool of biology, biochemistry, microbiology, pharmacology, and medicine.

Histopathology, the microscopic study of diseased tissue, is an important tool in anatomical pathology, since accurate diagnosis of cancer and other diseases usually requires histopathological examination of samples. Trained physicians, frequently board-certified as pathologists, are the personnel who perform histopathological examination and provide diagnostic information based on their observations.

Ratings and Reviews

worthless for learning histology


This app contains about 200 low magnification histological images with short descriptions. The short descriptions and definitions of the structures shown appear ok, but the resolution of the images is totally inadequate. It is impossible to see the details that are described in the text and recognizing the tissue/organ shown is more of a guessing game. The quiz consists of simple recognition MCQs and does not include any functional aspects. Several images are missing, e.g. eye, peripheral nerve teased, peripheral nerve, hyaline cartilage etc. Although it doesn’t cost a lot of money, it is worthless for learning histology

So bad. Worthless


This gives you almost nothing to go on. Seriously. Offers 200 slides?... Rip off! You need to buy them all after you've already bought the app. Not only that, but resolution is really bad. NOT WORTH IT.

NOT helpful

Aspiring med student

Cannot apply higher power. Ability to zoom in is not available. Can't make out structures in any slides and can barely identify large tissues. The blood slide is a smear of purple- leukocytes and erythrocytes are not visible. Taking pictures of my textbook images and flipping through them to quiz myself is much better alternative.
