Instruction in cytology and cytochemistry would follow later in both the lab and the classroom.
With no tissue remaining, only destained sections can be used for cytochemistry or immunohistochemistry, which might impair the final evaluation.
Fluorescence microscopy is less invasive than electron microscopy and can be applied to living cells through the use of green fluorescent protein-fusion proteins or fluorescence analog cytochemistry .
The relationship between the timing of these changes in the cytochemistry of the chalazal cells and the timing of the changes in grain water content and grain dry weight which occur during grain development has not been established.
The laboratory's role in identifying leukemic blasts by morphology and cytochemistry remains important for initial diagnosis.
Until recently, visualization of cytoskeletal filaments was mainly limited to immunofluorescent staining of fixed cells or fluorescent analog cytochemistry for living cells.
The peripheral blood and bone marrow aspirates demonstrated abnormal lymphoid cells with cytoplasmic projections that were weakly positive for tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase cytochemical staining.
The morphologic, cytochemical , and immunophenotypic findings supported the diagnosis of hairy cell leukemia.
Smears of peripheral blood were prepared by conventional manual slide technique and stained by Wright stain or various cytochemical staining methods.
The histologic, cytochemical , and immunohistochemical features resembled a carcinoid tumor, and metastasis to the bone marrow was considered initially.
