I began my work flow with the pap smears. First I accession them, making sure name, DOB, and all other information matches the vial. I then register each one giving it, its own hospital registration number. Then Order each one so it has its own PS number. Then process each one using the Thin Prep 2000. After the sample has been transfered to a slide , i run it though degrading ETOH and place them on the automatic stainer followed by the coversliper. I also handle all of the accessioning, ordering and processing of all the Non-gyn's and FNA's. Non's being urines, ascites, pleural fluids, bronch washes and brushes, sputum's , CSF, abscess fluid, gallbladder brushings, gum brushings, Emesis. I also process the FNA's from CT, Ultra sound, OR and from the clinics.
