4 Cell concentration techniques There are four main techniques employed in cytopathology to concentrate cell samples. They are: centrifugation, cytocentrifugation, membrane filtration and cell-block preparation. 1 Centrifugation This method is suitable for large-volume specimens such as urine, serous effusions and salinated lavage specimens. The procedure is simple: the specimen is transferred to a labelled sterile centrifuge tube and centrifuged to concentrate the specimen. 2; however, a glass slide is used to spread the cellular material rather than a spatula.

Note the nuclei are relatively small compared to the overall volume of the cell in both the squamous and glandular epithelium, although this is clearer in the squamous cells. The nuclei are round or ovoid in shape, and have a smooth nuclear contour and evenlydistributed chromatin, which is homogeneous and finely granular. There is little variation between cells of similar type and maturity Changes in the morphology of the above are important diagnostic indicators as the nuclear morphology reflects the state of proliferation and reproductive capacity of the cell, and the cytoplasm generally provides an indication of origin, functional state and degree of differentiation.

These tissue cores are then inserted in a recipient paraffin block in a spatial array. Sections from this new block can subsequently be cut and mounted on a microscope slide and prepared under the normal processing schedule. TMAs are commonly prepared for tissue immunohistochemistry and fluorescent in situ hybridization. TMAs are particularly useful in the analysis of morphology in haematoxylin and eosin (H&E)-stained preparations. The use of TMA analysis is now becoming standard practice in research pathology laboratories.
