Aim: To evaluate the possibility of air dried smear and rehydration with corn syrup instead of conventional method.
Materials and Methods: 20 paired buccal smear taken from the healthy individual. one set labelled as wet fixation with 95% ethanol and other set labelled as dry fixation with rehydration with corn syrup. They were graded blindly.
Results : Statically significant similarities were seen between the two groups in terms of cellularity and staining intensity.
Conclusion: The procedure of air drying and rehydration with corn syrup is inexpensive, easy, convenient technique and almost equally effective to routine fixation.
