Methodology:
Specimen Required:
CPT Code(s):
Collection Procedure: To obtain an anal sampling, moisten the Dacron® swab with water, not lubricant. The Dacron® swab should be inserted
approximately 1.5 to 2 inches into the anal canal. It is important to use Dacron® and not a cotton swab, as cells tend to cling to cotton and do not
release easily into cytology collection fluids. Once inserted deep enough into the anus (necessary in order to collect both rectal columnar and anal
squamous cells) the swab should be pulled out, applying some pressure to the wall of the anus, rotating the swab in a spiral motion along the way.
The cells collected can be placed in a cytology collection fluid (preferred) or spread on a glass slide and immediately spray-fixed. The preferred
method of collection is in SurePath™ collection fluid. The collection device should be thoroughly rinsed and swirled in the vial. The vial should
be labeled with the patient's first and last name and collection date, placed in a specimen bag, and shipped to the Cytology Lab. The specimen
must be accompanied by an ARUP Cytology test request form with the requested test marked.

Cytology, Body Cavity Fluid Collection
Patient Preparation:
Body cavity fluids are commonly evaluated for the presence of malignant cells from metastatic disease. Body cavity fluids
in general are relatively easy to obtain and are relatively difficult to compromise. However, in some instances, due to a large number of
inflammatory cells, specimens may degenerate rapidly. In addition, if large amounts of protein are present, the specimen may clot, trapping
diagnostic cells within the clot. These fluids include pleural, peritoneal, pericardial, synovial, and pelvic washing.
Specimen Required: Collect: Body Cavity Fluids
Indications: Detection and characterization of malignant cells in body cavity fluids.
Specimen Required: 10 mL (or more) of fluid obtained from an appropriately performed paracentesis.
Supplies: Standard paracentesis equipment. Clean collection container of appropriate size. Fixative (50% ethyl alcohol).
Collection Procedure: Using standard paracentesis technique, obtain a fluid specimen from the desired body cavity. If necessary, move the
patient into multiple positions to suspend cellular material in the fluid. A minimum of 10 mL of specimen is desirable for optimal cytologic
evaluation. If other studies are required, withdraw a fraction of the specimen and submit it to the appropriate laboratory separately, following their
guidelines for specimen collection. Heparin may be added to the specimen to reduce clotting. Place 3 units of heparin per mL capacity of the
collection container. Agitate the container to coat the sides with heparin. Rinse the paracentesis instrument with a small amount of heparin to
prevent clotting of specimen before it is put into the collection container. Add specimen to the heparinized container. Gently agitate to thoroughly
mix the specimen and heparin. Label the container with the patient's first and last name, date of birth, specimen type, and collection date. Submit
the specimen to the Cytopathology Laboratory along with the completed Cytology test request form. If transport of the specimen will be delayed
more than 24 hours, add an equal volume of 50% ethyl alcohol (if sample size is too large to accommodate this volume, a well mixed aliquot of
the specimen with an equal volume of fixative may be utilized). If transport time will be less than 24 hours, or fixative is not available, the
specimen should be refrigerated or kept on wet ice until transport to the lab.
Pelvic Washing
Indications: Detection and characterization of malignant cells in pelvic washing.
Specimen Required: 10 mL (or more) of fluid obtained from an appropriately performed washing.
Supplies: Standard suction equipment. Clean collection container of appropriate size. Fixative (50% ethyl alcohol).
Collection Procedure: Using appropriate sterile technique during intra-abdominal surgery, instill a physiologic solution into the pelvic cavity.
Lavage the area of interest. Aspirate the solution and place in a clean container. Label the container with the patient's first and last name, date of
birth, specimen type and collection date. Submit the specimen and completed Cytology test request form to the Cytopathology Laboratory. If
transport of the specimen will be delayed more than 24 hours, add an equal volume of 50% ethyl alcohol. If transport time will be less than 24
hours, or fixative is not available, the specimen should be refrigerated or kept on wet ice until transport to the lab.

Methodology:
Cytology, Cerebrospinal Fluid
CS
Microscopy
Patient Preparation:
Indications: Detection and characterization of malignant cells in the central nervous system. In cytology, cerebrospinal
fluid is most commonly evaluated to detect and characterize malignancy which may have gained access to the central nervous system. While in
most individuals, CSF specimens are relatively easy to obtain, in some individuals collection may require radiographic guidance. In addition, due
to lack of nutrients in this fluid, cells may rapidly degenerate rendering morphologic evaluation less than optimal if adequate care is not taken.
Specimen Required: Collect: Minimum of 3 mL cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). (10 mL CSF minimum required for immunologic marker studies)
Supplies: Standard cerebrospinal fluid collection equipment. Clean, clear 10 mL collection container for CSF. Fixative (50% ethyl alcohol).
Collection Procedure: Using standard CSF procedure, collect 3 mL of CSF. In general, morphology of cells within the CSF can be adequately
maintained with prompt refrigeration for 24 hours. Although a fresh specimen is preferred, if a longer time period between collection and
processing is anticipated, the specimen may be preserved by adding an equal volume of 50% ethyl alcohol to the specimen. Label the container
with the patient's first and last name, date of birth, specimen type and collection date. Submit the specimen to the Cytopathology Laboratory
along with the completed Cytology test request form.

FR REQUEST
Needle Aspirate
Microscopy/Polymerase Chain Reaction
Patient Preparation:
For superficial aspiration, a clean technique suffices for cleansing of the skin. Local anesthetic may or may not be needed.
If more than two or three passes are anticipated, anesthetic is recommended. However, do not contaminate the lesion with a large volume of
anesthetic. Make passes so as to not affect the ability to palpate and localize the lesion. For deep aspiration, sterile technique is required and local
anesthetic is usually needed.
Use good aspiration technique and appropriate processing of the aspirate to ensure an adequate specimen.
Specimen Required: Collect: FNA specimen, include source and completed Cytology Test Request form.
Specimen Preparation: Specimen Required: Slides with air-dried smear or air-dried and Diff-Quick stained smear. Specimen should be
adequately cellular for cytologic evaluation and obtained from an appropriately performed FNA. Specimen must contain enough material for the
cytopathologist to determine if a mass lesion has been sampled.
Supplies: 10 mL syringe or syringe pistol (optional) and 23 to 27 gauge needle of appropriate length. Multiple single-end-frosted glass for
preparation of direct smears. Fixative for needle rinse (e.g., CytoRich Red, CytoLyt, Saccomanno, etc.).
Preparation of Direct Smears
Before performing the FNA, prepare slides. Use a pencil to label each slide with the patient's first and last name, date of birth, and specimen
source. After collection, carefully transfer the aspirate to the prepared slides using a method appropriate to the nature of the aspirate. If the aspirate
is abundant and fluid, gently express onto the slide. Gentle expression allows for better control of the smear and provides the greatest number of
slides per FNA pass. If the aspirate is scant or is more viscous or solid, appropriate force may be needed to express the aspirate. Excessive force
can result in fewer slides per FNA pass if the aspirate splatters off the slide during expression, and additional FNA passes may be needed if more
studies are required.
Aspirate must be smeared after application to the slide. The simplest procedure is to oppose a second glass slide onto the first, allowing the
material to provide surface tension between the two slides. Then, gently and quickly pull the two slides apart in a horizontal, sliding motion to
distribute the material in a thin film over both slides. Immediately air dry.
Page | 185
The smears should be: air-dried for Diff-Quik staining (delineate with an "A" on the frosted end of the slide).
If aspirate remains in the needle, use to, prepare additional smears or rinse needle into a tube containing fixative or a physiologic solution such as
normal saline, or RPMI.
CPT Code(s):
Submit the specimen (smears and aspirate rinsed into solution) to the ARUP Cytopathology Laboratory along with a completed Cytology test

Supplies: Vaginal speculum, plastic extended-tip spatula, cytobrush***, fixative** (spray fixative or bottle of 95 percent ethyl alcohol), clean
glass slide (single-end frosted) and a black lead lab pencil.
Collection Procedure: Label one slide with the patient's first and last name, date of birth, and specimen source (prior to obtaining the specimen).
Obtain specimen prior to bimanual examination. Use an unlubricated speculum (saline or warm water may be used). After visualization of the
cervix is accomplished insert the cytobrush*** into the endocervical canal and rotate half a turn. Withdraw the cytobrush and spread the collected
material quickly and evenly onto the half of the slide opposite the frosted end. The endocervical mucus will prevent air-drying during collection of
the subsequent cervical component. Using the extended-tip spatula, scrape material with the spatula from the whole circumference of the cervix.
Withdraw the spatula and spread the collected material quickly and evenly onto the half of the slide adjacent to the frosted end. Fix immediately
(drop slide into fixative or spray with fixative, holding the spray bottle approximately 8 to 12 inches from the slide). Complete the Cytology test
request form as indicated, including relevant clinical information. Submit the specimen to the Cytopathology Laboratory.
Routine Vaginal Smear - 1 or More Slides
Indications: Can be used in conjunction with routine cervical/endocervical smears in individuals with a uterus, or alone in hysterectomized
patients.
Specimen Required: Lateral vaginal wall smear or smear of sample from a clinically concerning area.
Supplies:Vaginal speculum, one or more plastic cervical spatulas, fixative** (spray fixative or 95% ethyl alcohol), one or more clean glass slides
(single-end frosted) and a black lab pencil.
Collection Procedure: If only a routine lateral vaginal wall sample will be obtained, label one slide with the patient's first and last name, date of
birth, and specimen source. If vaginal sample will be obtained in conjunction with a cervical and endocervical component, make sure that the
slides are also appropriately labeled according to site. If smears from separate vaginal areas are also to be obtained, label the sites accordingly as
to specific site (e.g., left lateral vaginal wall, posterior vaginal wall, etc.). Obtain specimens prior to bimanual evaluation. Use an unlubricated
speculum (saline or warm water may be used). Scrape the desired region of the vaginal mucosa with the spatula. Withdraw the spatula and spread
the material quickly and evenly onto the glass slide (if cervical/endocervical smears are also obtained, or smears from other areas of the vagina are
obtained, make certain that each smear is performed on the correspondingly labeled slide). Fix immediately (drop slide into fixative or spray with
fixative, holding the spray bottle approximately 8 to 12 inches from the slide). Scrape additional areas of the vagina that appear abnormal and
spread and fix as above. Submit the specimen to the Cytopathology Laboratory with relevant clinical history.
Routine Cervical/Endocervical (PAP) Smear (2 or More Slides)*
Specimens Required: Unstained cervical or endocervical slides.
Supplies: Vaginal speculum, plastic extended-tip spatula, cytobrush***, fixative** (spray fixative or bottle of 95% ethyl alcohol), two clean glass
slides (single end frosted) and a black lead lab pencil.

Collection Specimen: Label two slides with the patient's first and last name, date of birth, and specimen source (prior to obtaining the specimen).
Obtain specimens prior to bimanual examination. Use an unlubricated speculum (saline or warm water may be used). After visualization of the
cervix is accomplished, scrape material with the spatula from the whole circumference of the cervix. Withdraw the spatula and spread the
collected material quickly and evenly onto the glass slide. Fix immediately (drop slide into fixative or spray with fixative, holding the spray bottle
approximately 8 to 12 inches from the slide). Insert the cytobrush*** into the endocervical canal and rotate half a turn. Withdraw the cytobrush
and spread the collected material quickly and evenly onto the second slide. Fix immediately (drop slide into fixative or spray with fixative,
holding the spray bottle approximately 8 to 12 inches from the slide). Submit the specimen to the Cytopathology Laboratory with relevant clinical
history.
Vaginal Smear, DES Exposure - 2 or more slides
Indications: Evaluation of potential changes associated with in utero DES exposure.
Specimens Required: Lateral vaginal wall sample, cervical sample, endocervical sample.
Supplies: Vaginal speculum, one or more cervical spatulas, one extended-tip spatula, cytobrush***, fixative** (spray fixative or 95% ethyl
alcohol), two or more clean glass slides (single end frosted), black lead lab pencil, and test request form as indicated.
Collection Procedure: Label two or more slides with patient's first and last name, date of birth, and specimen source. Label one slide "C" and one
"LVW." Label others as necessary (see below). Obtain specimens prior to bimanual examination. Use an unlubricated speculum (saline or warm
water may be used). After visualization of the upper 1/3 of the vagina is accomplished, with the spatula scrape the upper 1/3 of either lateral
vaginal wall. Withdraw the spatula and spread the material quickly and evenly onto the slide clearly marked "LVW." Fix immediately (drop slide
into fixative or spray with fixative, holding the spray bottle approximately 8 to 12 inches from the slide). Scrape additional areas of the vagina that
appear abnormal. Label slides accordingly (prior to sampling) and spread and fix as above. Obtain routine cervical and endocervical specimens as
outlined in the respective procedures. These smears should be collected on the slide labeled "C." Submit the specimen to the Cytopathology
Laboratory with relevant clinical history.

Patient Preparation:
1. For premenopausal patients, obtain specimens during the second half of the menstrual period to avoid contamination by
obscuring blood.
2. Instruct the patient not to douche or engage in sexual intercourse within 24 hours of the procedure
Supplies: This test requires a SurePath collection kit, which includes a preservative fluid collection vial and sampling device(s). Kits may be
ordered separately through ARUP Client Services at (800) 522-2787 or (801) 583-2787. Also required: ARUP Cytology test request form,
permanent marker.
Specimen Required: Collect: 1. Label the vial(s) with the patient's first and last name, date of birth, and specimen source before beginning the procedure.
2. Obtain all specimens prior to bimanual examination.
3. Place the patient in the lithotomy position. Using an unlubricated vaginal speculum (saline may be used as a lubricant) visualize the cervix as
fully as possible.
4. Follow the instructions for the specific collection kit used.
Collection Procedure: Obtain cervical specimen prior to bimanual examination. Use an unlubricated speculum (saline or warm water may be
used). Vaginal discharge or secretion, when present in large amounts, should be removed before obtaining the cervical sample so as not to disturb
the epithelium (i.e., cellulose swab). Small amounts of blood will not interfere with the cytologic evaluation; however, large amounts of blood as
present during menses may interfere with cytologic evaluation because cells may be obscured by blood. Use of liquid-based specimen collection
minimizes the interference from these factors. If testing for sexually transmitted disease is indicated, the cervical cytology sample should be taken
first. After visualization of the cervix is accomplished, collect the sample. Obtain an adequate sampling from the cervix using the Rovers®
Cervex-Brush® or Cervex-Brush® Combi or the Pap Perfect® plastic spatula with the Cytobrush® Plus GT.
ROVERS® CERVEX-BRUSH® Collection (Kit #22216): Device may be referred to as broom. Position the tip of the longer bristles into the
cervical os/endocervical canal. Begin rotating in a clockwise direction (one-quarter to one-half turn). The bristles will begin to stiffen. Continue
rotating in a clockwise direction and gently push towards the cervix until the shorter bristles begin to bend extending over the ectocervix.
Complete five 360-degree rotations. Direction must be consistent. Do not alter or vary the direction of the broom during sampling. Transfer the
entire sample by placing your thumb against the back of the brush pad, and simply disconnect the entire brush from the stem into the preservative
vial. Contraindication: Do not use on pregnant patients after the first 10 weeks of gestation.
PAP PERFECT® PLASTIC SPATULA AND CYTOBRUSH® PLUS GT Collection (Kit #41126): Insert the contoured end of the Pap
Perfect plastic spatula and rotate 360 degrees around the entire exocervix. Disconnect the spatula head and place it in into the vial. Insert the
Cytobrush Plus GT into the endocervix until only the bottom most fibers are exposed at the cervical os. Slowly rotate or turn one half turn in one
direction. To reduce unnecessary bleeding, DO NOT over rotate. Disconnect the brush head and place in the preservative vial. Contraindication:
Do not use on pregnant patients or for endometrial sampling.
ROVERS® CERVEX-BRUSH® COMBI Collection (Kit #45031): Insert central bristles into the endocervical canal. Use gentle pressure on
the cervix until the lateral bristles bend against the ectocervix. Maintain gentle pressure and rotate two times in a clockwise direction by rolling the
stem between the thumb and forefinger. Disconnect the brush head and place in the preservative vial. Contraindication: This device should not
be used during pregnancy.

Microscopy
Patient Preparation:
Indications: Detection and characterization of malignant cells in the eye. In cytology, vitreous fluid is most commonly
evaluated to detect and characterize malignancy which may have gained access to the eye. Vitreous fluid specimens require special collection
procedures under the direction of an ophthalmologist. In addition, due to lack of nutrients in this fluid, cells may rapidly degenerate rendering
morphologic evaluation less than optimal if adequate care is not taken.
Specimen Required: Collect: For vitreous fluids, there is no minimum amount, but collect as much as possible.
Supplies: Standard vitreous aspiration equipment. Standard vitreous aspirate collection container for vitreous fluid. Fixative (50% ethyl alcohol).
Collection Procedure: Using standard vitreous collection procedures, collect an appropriate amount of vitreous fluid. In general, morphology of
cells within vitreous fluid can be adequately maintained with prompt refrigeration for 24 hours. Although a fresh specimen is preferred, if a longer
time period between collection and processing is anticipated, the specimen may be preserved by adding an equal volume of 50% ethyl alcohol to
the specimen. Label the specimen with patient's first and last name, date of birth and specimen source. Submit the specimen to the Cytopathology
Laboratory along with the completed Cytology request form.
CPT Code(s):
