RE: [Histonet] Validation-Cyto Non-Gyn to Thin Prep

From:"Joe Nocito"

We ran side by side testing for about 5-6 specimens from each type, i.e. 5
urines, 5 breast fluids, 5 peritoneal fluids, etc.  The only type we
couldn't run side by side was CSF. However, our experience with CSF was that
there was increased cellularity captured with the Thinprep. I guess it's up
to each individual on how comfortable they feel. Hope this helps.

  Hello All:
     The director of my lab (pathologist) and my supervisor (Cytotech)
  have asked me to post this question on HistoNet.
     Has anyone done validation for converting non-gyn cytology
  specimens to Thin Prep?  Did you run parallel samples many?,etc.
  Any input will be graciously welcomed.  Thanks very much.
