About Cytology Fixative Spray
A chemical solution called cytology fixative spray is used in the study of cytology to preserve and fix cellular samples for microscopic inspection.
To avoid any alterations or degradation in the cellular structure, cellular specimens must be preserved as soon as they are obtained. Fixation aids in the preservation of cellular elements and guards against artifacts that might appear during processing and staining.
By cross-linking proteins and maintaining cellular shape, liquid-based cytology is intended to fix cellular specimens quickly. To ensure the best possible preservation of the cellular structure, it is often employed in conjunction with other fixation techniques, such as fixatives based on formalin.
In order to guarantee uniform fixation, the fixative spray is immediately administered to the cellular specimen, often in the form of a fine mist. It enters the cells and creates a chemical connection with proteins, “freezing” them in their organic state. This permits further processing procedures, such as staining and microscopic analysis, without substantially altering the morphology of the cells.
When processing cytological samples in labs, hospitals, and research organisations, fixative sprays for cytology are frequently employed. These sprays are frequently combined with other cytology procedures, including Pap smears, fine needle aspiration (FNA) biopsies, and other cell collection techniques.
