[Histonet] cytospin preps and plus slides

From:"Elizabeth Chlipala"

Hello Everyone
I'm working on a project for a client who is trying to isolate prostate
epithelial cells.  I'm getting the cells submitted to me fixed in 10%
NBF in eppendorf tubes.  I'm using a cytospin for 5 minutes at 1000 rpm
and plus slides.  The problem is that I'm not getting the correct yield
of cells.  They check the number of cells in the prep prior to me
receiving them.  They are submitting numbers of cells in the thousands,
but when I prepare the cytospin slides, I'm only getting cells numbering
in the hundreds and sometimes less.  Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance
