[Histonet] tb in bal

From:"Horn, Hazel V"

We are expecting a positive TB bronch lavage.  We do not have cytofix
and the microbiology department puts bleach in the specimen to kill the
TB.  What will this do to our stains.  Probably a Dif Quik and an AFB.
Would 95% kill TB to fix the specimen?  HELP!
