Greetings to all,
so far we handled wet-fixed cytology slides as health risk free without gloves, however there is no data regarding this on the net (or at least I wasn't able to find it). I would appreciate response on safety policy in other cytology labs regarding fixed cytology slides and/or any reference on the subject.
many thanks

You should handle all of your cytology slides with gloves on to prevent epithelial contamination regardless of fixation/health risk
