RE: [Histonet] Thin-Prep

From:"Weems, Joyce"

I just reread this and realized you weren't talking about tissue - duh. Let me try this again.The majority of our cytology is nons. We spin, vortex, pour off, pour in - etc. There are non-gyn supplies separate from the gyn for this purpose. If you'd like, I'll direct you to my Cytotech... j-----Original Message-----From: histonet-bounces@lists.utsouthwestern.edu[mailto:histonet-bounces@lists.utsouthwestern.edu]On Behalf Of Scholz,Stephen J.Sent: Wednesday, March 16, 2005 3:57 PMTo: histonet@lists.utsouthwestern.eduSubject: [Histonet] Thin-PrepHello all;I was instructed by a Pathologist that I work for to investigate using the ThinPrep technology in a non-gyne capacity.  Is this done?  I know that it is used for gyne specimens but I have never heard of using the technology for non-gyne.  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.
