RE: [Histonet] Cytology Immuno's

From:"Joe Nocito"

Jean,
we use paraffin controls for any cytology specimen. I wish we could keep
some cyto prep controls available, but we just don't have the room, nor the
specimens.
	During my CAP inspection in January, it wasn't an issue, 50 other items
were an issue, but not using FFPE controls with cytology

Can I ask you all, what do you use as controls when doing ICC on cytology
cytospin preps or smears?  Since there isn't much sample, do you use
paraffin sections as positive controls and is that adequate control
measures?  We currently only use paraffin cytoblocks but considering ICC on
thin layer cytology preps and wondering what control material to use.
Thanks for your help.
