I am getting complaints in regard to "insufficient" cell blocks.  We currently spin, pour off the supernatant, retrieve the sediment and process in lens paper.

Does anyone have a more current technique which renders better cellularity?

Also, do you know which renders a better cell block:  a fresh specimen, a specimen fixed in Cytolyt or a specimen fixed in 10% NBF?
