[Histonet] cross contamination

Hi Histonetters-


Our laboratory does not process gynecologic cytology specimens and we
have a relatively small number of non gynecologic specimens. Usually
when we process the non gynecologic cytology specimens, they are done
separately. I saw a CAP question which addresses prevention of cross
contamination in the cytopathology section. Does anyone have a protocol
which they could share which addresses the issue of "nongynecologic
specimens that have a high potential for cross-contamination being
stained separately from other nongynecologic specimens? 

Thanks in advance for your help.
