need help....

From:Colleen Forster <>

It was suggested that I might lyse the RBCS in the formalin specimen.
How would I do this? I cannot remember what
and how much to add to the solution without damaging other cells??/

Also, Lynn, purple top tubes contain EDTA so blood will not coagulate.
However, I doubt there is a  fixative as most blood
work is done stat and tubes tossed daily. that is why I wondered if you
could still fix and get anything. Any comments?????

As Always, your help is APPRECIATED !!!!
