Logically, but having no knowledge of this at all, I would assume that
you would have to use different protocols for differing animal species.
Everything else various, rbc count, wbc count, different reactions to
drugs, etc. Very interesting question but how you would find them out
eludes me.

Usually fix preps with methanol for air dried or spray fix for 'fixed'.

We are a veterinary teaching hospital currently evaluating a Ventana 
Benchmark LT.  I have a few questions:
1. Do protocols for antibodies vary among different animal species?
2. For cytology specimens (FNA or wet preps), where did you get your
3. For cytology specimens (fna or wet preps), what fixation, if any, do 
these slides need?

Thank you in advance to those that respond.  Have a great day!
