Re: Cytology Medical Preparations

From:Jennifer MacDonald <>

At the hospital that I left 4 smears were prepared and a slide on the cell
block, totaling 5 slides.  Two were air-dried and stained with diff-quik and
two were fixed in 95% alcohol and stained with a PAP stain.  The cell block
section is stained with an H&E.  If the fluid was scanty and a cytospin prep
was used than one of each stain.
