We make two slides.
One air dried DQ for immediate assessment, second alcohol fixed for PAP
in the lab.
The "spreader" we either stain with Giemsa or rehydrate (using saline)
and stain with PAP in lab.

Triage as follows: If inflammatory, second pass for microbiology.
If malignant, if required, then second pass for cell block.

A question has arisen for us- How many slides do you (should you) make
per pass for pathologist  for adequacy and/or diagnosis? 


What about CT guided biopsies of liver, lung, "masses"  etc. 


Thanks in advance for your input.  Jane
