Hi Selina,
	We've been using Diff-Quik for a number of years now. It is
produced by a company called Dade Behring AG in Switzerland, but we buy
it from McQuilkin and Co.  in Glasgow (Tel:  0141 429 7777). It's
supplied as a kit containing 3  ( x500ml ) solutions ( as Mike rightly
said ) and we pay approx 80 per kit ( Product Code 130832). We use it
in Cytology for fluid samples and for FNA's. It is very simple to use,
air dry the smear/ 5-6 dips each solution/ rinse in water/ air dry/
mount in DPX . ( we use a hot air 'gun' to dry them rapidly ). It's
ideal for the 'one-stop' breast clinics we run. If you need any more
info just get in touch.
	Hope this helps,
		Alex. Brown
		Crosshouse Hospital
		Kilmarnock, Scotland.

Hi folks,

can anyone help me to locate a product called DiffQuick?
I believe that it's a stain that can be used to help distinguish the
different white cell types.
If not can anyone recommend anything that I could use for this purpose?
Many thanks.
Yours hopefully.
