On the variability in goblet cell density in human bulbar conjunctival samples collected by impression cytology with Millicell-CM Biopore membrane units

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Purpose: To assess whether or not the numbers of goblet cells were different across regions of a conjunctival impression cytology (CIC) specimen.

Methods: CIC specimens were obtained from the exposed nasal bulbar conjunctiva from 22 healthy young Caucasian adults, stained with Giemsa and evaluated at a final magnification of 200× (medium power fields). Up to 14 different non-overlapping microscope fields, depending on whether or not a field was without goblet cells, were randomly selected.
