Good Morning, Histonet!   Happy Spring 2000!

Our lab has always been accustomed to fixing bone marrow smears in
methanol prior to staining for Fe and with Wright -Giemsa.  

We now have a new director who advocates air-drying only.

I have been unable to find a reference for this subject, so I defer to
the think-tank at Histonet.   

Any takers?
