Re: Blue staining on marrow smears

Cheryl George, HT (ASCP), Anatomic Pathology Supervisor, NHML asks about 
>>One of the hospitals that sends us bone marrow smears (they send the 
unstained smears which are stained here using Wright-Giemsa) continually come 
out blue. <<

First question always: are they collecting the specimen in heparin? If they 
are, they need to stop collecting in heparin. 

Where and what is NHML?
