Prior to cytopreparation, there are certain prerequisites that must be followed rigidly. Every specimen container, every test tube in which any given specimen is processed, and every glass slide used to prepare the smear must be labeled properly with the patient's name, unique identifying number, and laboratory accession number. Cytopreparation must be performed under the biologic hood and by following universal precautions. If the smears are prepared in the clinic, the clinicians must be properly instructed as to the preferred way of making smears, fixation, and most importantly, to identify the slides appropriately by labeling with patient's name and unique identifying number.
We use a modified Papanicolaou staining technique and therefore fix immediately with alcohol as part of a spray. If Mayâ€“GrÃ¼nwaldâ€“Giemsa stain is used, the smear is air dried and no prompt fixation is necessary. POSTBIOPSY CARE If there has been no intranodular bleeding, we apply an elastic bandage and keep the patient under surveillance for about 15 minutes. If there has been some bleeding into the nodule, we ask the patient to maintain pressure for about 30 minutes. In either instance, removal of the bandage after 1 hour is authorized.
