Impeccable sample fixation is a prerequisite for a correct cytological diagnosis. Tissue samples must be immersed in an optimally chosen fixative immediately after sampling, while they are still moist. Imminent fixation of the sample prevents drying and cell shape change, in turn enabling clear staining and a correct diagnosis. CitoFix solution is an ideal choice in liquid based cytology for treating hematology or cytology samples. Also available in transport containers.
