ThinPrep equipment (Cytyc) is needed to prepare ThinPreps and there is no practical way of doing it manually, to my knowledge.
There is another system (SurePath) that can prepare liquid based cytology preparations and it appears to be less expensive and some may say, more efficient (some would say, I’m not saying anything!!!!!!!!) However, look at both alternatives, the end result, some would say are similar (I’m not saying anything), but one thing I WILL say, is that either are better than conventional.
I screen SurePath, ThinPrep and conventional every day. I prefer LBC over conventional but I’m not saying anything else in an open Forum!

Subject: [Histonet] Thin Preps
Since Histology & Cytology sometimes cross, would any of you know if the Thin Prep equipment is required to prepare the slides for interpretation, or if there is a manual procedure for doing so?
Any assistance you may provide is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your help.
