Specimen fixation in urinary cytology


, : Specimen fixation in urinary cytology. Acta Cytologica 22(3): 142-145

Several solutions were evaluated with regard to the preservation and preparation of urine for cytologic evaluation, using a Millipore filtration method. An adequate quantitative yield and good cellular morphology were obtained with formaldehyde-based mixtures as well as with several commercially available solutions. A pure transport medium inhibiting bacterial growth and enzymatic activity preserved cell samples equally well.
