[Histonet] "Floaters" in surgical or cytology specimens

I am posting this question for a colleague in our Cytology department.     How often do you see floaters on surgical or cytology specimens?    Obviously we would never want to see any type of carryover but is there a standard rate published somewhere that he can reference?

Thanks in advance for your help.
