We need to do lectin stains on blood smears.  I have done lectin stains on tissues in the past, but have questions about blood smears.  

Do I need to do blocking steps (ie:  3% H202/MeOH and protein blocker)?
Do I need to pre-treat with trypsin?

My gut instinct is no to both questions, but would appreciate any insight.

Thank you,
