OBJECTIVE Pooled bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF), the return of lavage, contains both bronchial and alveolar material which differ from each other. Artifacts may be created by filtering, centrifuging and washing cells before cytopreparation. This study presents reference values of healthy volunteers for the alveolar sample, ALF, cytopreparation being performed without filtration or centrifugation. METHODS Eighteen healthy, non-smoking volunteers underwent a standard bronchoalveolar lavage… CONTINUE READING
