ThinPrep? Only ThinPrep? You don't actually mean Liquid based Cytology
do you? No? Only ThinPrep?

Surely not..................

I was an early user and supporter of cytospin.
No longer.
They have become expensive and cumbersome/safety oriented, without in
any way addressing the problems of getting an even thin spread that is
neither too wet or too dry when it emerges.
If you get a good preparation you could cover it up with a blouse
*Furthermore*, as Spriggs insisted long ago, it does nothing that can't
be done easier in a conventional centrifuge with proper technique.

Enter ThinPrep - ah, bliss.

Hi Everyone!


As someone who has always preferred to avoid cytology specimens like the
plague, I now find myself in the position of outfitting a lab from
that must deal with non-gyn cytologies in relatively low numbers.  Can
anyone offer their opinions and suggestions regarding ThinPrep vs
and anything else that may be out there that I am not aware of?
