The author thought that the results of cytologic tests could be changed according to the fixative methods. So the author has studied several methods of fixing exfolaiative cells collected from normal adult cheek mucosa with a solution of equal parts of ether and 95% ethylalcohol, 95 ethylalcohol and Isoprophyl alcohol, and compared the results with each other. The results were as follows : The effects of fixation, and staining efficiency of nucleus and protoplasm are similar in each method, but the staining efficiency of cytoplasm and the conversation of cytoplasmic membrane were best in 95% ethylalcohol.
