RE: [Histonet] Thin-Prep[Scanned]

From:Kemlo Rogerson

We regularly use ThinPrep (on a T2000) for our Non-Gynae on one Site;
Cytospins on the other. I believe all the instructions of use are in the
manuals that accompany the machine. From my short stay here, everything
seems fine but I have, as yet, not compared the two systems, but I shall; we
will have to migrate to one technology.

I screened a few urines and pleural fluids prepared by this technology
whilst I worked in the Independent Sector in London, they seemed very good,
but I had limited experience.

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

Hello 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. Scholz HT(ASCP)
