RE: [Histonet] Does Tape Coverslipper Work for Cytology Slides?

Urban legend.  There are numerous technical and optical reasons that
contradict using tape coverslipper, but overcalling Paps is not one of them.
If the distortion were so bad, one shouldn't attempt to interpret the cells
in the first place.

Subject: [Histonet] Does Tape Coverslipper Work for Cytology Slides?

Hello again...  

The Cytopathologist here heard that the "waviness" of the tape coverslip
will cause the cytologists to over-call the Pap smears. (Most of our Paps
are Thin Prep) 

Does anyone knows of a cytology lab that uses the Sakura Tape coverslipper
for paps? I would like to either confirm or dispel this rumor.
