Cell block preparation as an adjunctive diagnostic technique in ThinPrep monolayer preparations: a case report.

PMID:  11169897     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The cell block preparation, which increases cellular yield by capturing any small tissue fragments in a fluid specimen, has been used to define the histologic pattern of the cells in question. This report describes a case in which processing a cell block on residual ThinPrep Pap Test material, using a thrombin-based technique, was useful in augmenting the diagnosis of a glandular lesion.
