[Histonet] Cell Block preparation

From:"Houston, Ronald"

Would anyone care to comment on the pros and cons of preparing cell
blocks using the Plamsa/thrombin technique and the Agar method which is
more prominent in the European field?


I am particularly interested in the prevalence of background staining in
ICC. Does the use of plasma interfere with interpretation of the
staining results? I know there have been reports of extraneous tissue
being found in cell blocks coming from a commercially prepared clotting
