[Histonet] Bone Marrow Smears

Our smears are handmade and "smushed" as directed by our pathologist.
There are several techs making smears and a number of cases a day. 
The nakedness varies from case to case. It hasn't been tracked to a tech, 
to a technique (per our pathologist), etc... Any advice on avoiding this?

How are you making your smears? If you smush your smears when making them That will cause the problem.

Hi all. I have a pathologist complaining about "naked" nuclei
in his bone marrow smears. It's fairly random, some are great and
some are "naked". Anyone heard of this and have any idea what
may be causing this nakedness?
Any input would be helpful.Thank you.
