A buccal smear is a type of test in which cells are obtained from the inside of the cheek. By scraping the cheek with a cotton swab, you can collect the cells that way. The cells can be used for genetic testing and for determining whether there are any Barr bodies present (a mass seen in a normal female sex chromosome). When performed for this purpose, the buccal smear test can be utilized to determine whether or not a patient is male or female, among other things.

Why Done? 

  • This test is used to get cells for chromosome or DNA analysis, which is most commonly used for genetic testing.
