We have never noticed any significant cell loss if "dehemoglobinzing" is
done on bloody smears either before or after regular staining (as noted,
this is used ONLY when the smear is very bloody.  If it is very bloody
there can be very significant obscuration.  This is especially true of
liver FNA's).  As for regular staining, we have not found that the
addition of OG offers anything special (the rare case of keratinized
cells still stands out with the regular h and e stain).
