Hi all,
            We have been having a problem with our non-GYN PAPs. I've
changed the staining procedure to our pathologists liking but they want
a better fixation procedure as well. Currently we spin the samples in a
centrifuge, remove the excess liquid, cyto-spin the sediment and spray
with Surgipath's cytology fixative. What is everyone else doing? Any
help would be much appreciated.
Thank you,
