Satisfactory identification of the neoplastic cell as well as an optimal G-banding of its chromosomes are routinely obtained in our laboratory using a modification of the method described by Knuutila et al. [1]. Mitotic cells are first identified by either cytochemical or immunological staining. For G-banding, the preparations are then destained with methanol: acetic acid, treated with 2 × SSC at 65°C and restained with Wright stain. © 1991.
