We use the Thin Prep for non gyn specimens.  Do you already have this
machine?  If so, call Cytec and I am sure they could send someone to show
you how to process non-gyn.  Also in the procedure manual provided with the
machine is a step by step procedure for all types of non-gyn specimens.

Hello all;

I was instructed by a Pathologist that I work for to investigate using the
ThinPrep technology in a non-gyn capacity.  Is this done?  I know that it is
used for gyn specimens but I have never heard of using the technology for
non-gyn.  I'm a Histo-tech and my experience with cytology is limited so any
information that I could get would be appreciated.  (where to get the
instrument, cost, is it applicable)

Thank you,

Stephen J. Scholz HT(ASCP)
