vaginal smear

A smear of debris from the vaginal lumen of mammals, used to determine the stage of their reproductive cycle. It is most useful in subprimate mammals having short estrous cycles; nucleated epithelial cells and leukocytes prevail in the smear during diestrus and proestrus, and cornified cells during estrus.
