dividing cell preps

From:louise renton

Hi all,

Long, long ago, I once glanced at an article that described a technique of 
"splitting" cell preps in order to do separate stains. What I recall, is 
that the whole smear was coated with ?crystal mount, ?DPX, allowed to dry 
and then carefully peeled off the slide. The cells adhered to the mounting 
medium, and could be cut up into several portions and then, once stained, 

If anyone has a reference for this technique, I would be very grateful if I 
could have it.

Many, many thanks
