Patient discussion about primary cell

Q. what is the most accurate pathological test to identify the primary source of a cystic mass in the neck? the mass was removed. Pathologist was unable to identify the source and diagnosed the mass as a branchilogic carcinmoa (which is extremely rare, if exists at all). Therefore, I am looking for the most updated test and examinations that can be applied to blocks of the mass and determine their origin (primary source)

A. Pathologic examinaions under a microscope are the most accurate ones there are, and sometimes even they don't help to identify the cell types. I do not have any other ideas on other tests you can do, and I believe you should follow the treatment your doctors will advise you based on this diagnosis they have made.

Some manufacturers of primary batteries may not be able to cope because they can't sit and wait around for an order every four or five years.
Demand for primary batteries, exposed to more mature product markets and less potential for technological upgrade, will grow at a below-average pace.
Although the most intensive technological imperatives are found on the secondary (rechargeable) end of the battery spectrum, producers of primary batteries are also under pressure to upgrade performance/price tradeoffs in a highly competitive market climate.
But from 1992 to 1997, factory sales of primary batteries --described as AAA, AA and related sizes, in addition to rechargeables and telephone and camcorder packs -- nearly doubled.
