   Hi  all,  for those of you who also work with cytology - what is   procedure  for  fluids  that  have  a large volume?  How much of the    fluid do you process?

   I  am  wanting to compare our polic   instance  this  week  where  we received   processed  100  mL  of that after making sure it   first  cell blocks only contained fibrin, but the   malignant  cells.   When we went back to the contai   settled  after  24  hours so we poured off the top part of t   and  only  processed  the gunk at the bottom.  The second time t   were  malignant  cells in the cell block.  My pathologist is pushin   for us to process 100% of the fluids, 100% of the time, saying what we
   cu   get those
