We investigated a rapid immunoperoxidase (IPX) method utilizing a wide variety of antibodies for use on cytologic scrapings of fresh tissue that were submitted for intraoperative frozen section. The handling, fixation and IPX staining of these cytologic scrape specimens are more rapid and convenient than frozen tissue sections and spare tissues that may be of small quantity for appropriate special diagnostic studies (flow cytometry, cell markers, genetic studies, electron microscopy, and so… CONTINUE READING
