Cytobiologic pap fixative: features
Fixative for performing vaginal cytology in the liquid phase.
CYTOBIOLOGICAL PAP is a fixative based on formic aldehyde and alcohols used in the fixation of samples for the execution of vaginal cytology in the liquid phase, a valid substitute for the classic Pap Test in which the slides are smeared with the vaginal material.
The principle on which this type of fixation is based is to bring all the cells into solution and then cytocentrifuge the sample in such a way as to distribute the cells homogeneously and reduce the degree of inadequacy of the sample with respect to the smeared slide.
Furthermore, this fixation technique allows to prepare duplicates of the slides, to have samples that can be used for the research of HPV DNA and prepare Cell Block with the remaining sample.
