I have a question for those of you that also may perform cytology specimens at your facility.  How do you prevent carryover from one case to another?  For example, we had obvious carryover from a pleural fluid onto an FNA of a thyroid case.  This has never happened here (to our knowledge).  Has anyone else every experienced this?  We spray fixed our slides with an alcohol/acetone based fixative before staining them.  Any advice would be appreciated!
