[Histonet] bone marrow aspirations

Hi All,

I would appreciate some insight as to how most labs are treating bone 
marrow smears, in regards to fixation.  I am not embarrassed to say that 
it has been awhile since I worked with them.  With the smears are most 
labs air drying, methanol (alcohol fixation) or spray fixation (pap 
fixative) or something else?  I do thank you for your help.
