Hello.  I am having a problem with an excess number of smudge cells in
my sputum cytospins.  Can anybody tell me if it is possible that using a
non-polystyrene specimen container could be causing this, possibly as a
result of affecting cell viability?  If this is so, why does the plastic
affect the cells?
