Dear all

We have recently become aware of the use of Glacial acetic acid on Gynae
specimens which appear inadequate after the normal protocol. We have used
the GAA treatment on a few inadequates and found a marked improvement in
the cellularity. Would anyone like to share their experiences with us.

Many thanks
