RE: cytoprep cytology specimens
|From:||"MacDonald, Jennifer" <firstname.lastname@example.org>|
For hypocellular fluids we prepare two cytospins, one for a PAP stain and
the other for a Diff Quik stain. For hypercellular fluids we prepare four
smears, two for PAP and two for Diff Quick. We prepare a cell block for all
cases that we can.
> At our lab we prepare 4 cytospins from each fluid- csf, urine, breast asp,
> plural fl. etc- our paths feel two is not adequate representative sample.
> If we can we make cell blocks on thicker fluids like pleural fluid.
> On our bronch washes and sputums we prepare four smears each.
