We use the Diff quik (or whatever spelling you use!)stain on air-dried

There is also a rapid Poor man's H&E stain, using the Diff Quik
solutions, that you can also use. You can then restain with the normal
PAP stain back in the lab (Hirschowitz et al Acta Cytolog (1994)

We try to give an immediate provisional diagnosis at the time

This question is for those of you who perform fine needle aspirations. 
What stain are you using for your immediate evaluation?  Or do you give
immediate evaluation/adequacy?
