    Figure 2: Cell lines in RPMI culture medium were separately divided equally into 6 disposable tubes. After 24, 96, or 144 hours of storage at room temperature, the disposable tubes were centrifuged at 800g for 10 minutes. All samples were divided into sediment and RPMI supernatant fluid.

    Figure 2: (A) Cytologic details of positivity (3+, strong cytoplasmic positivity) for VE1 (the anti v-Raf murine sarcoma viral oncogene homolog B1 [BRAF] valine to glutamic acid substitution at codon 600 [BRAFV600E] antibody) are observed in a sample of papillary thyroid carcinoma. (B) Histologic details of VE1 positivity are observed in the same sample.

    Figure 2: Supraclavicular lymph node fine-needle aspiration specimen containing yeast forms consistent with Cryptococcus. (A) Round to oval, focally budding yeasts of various sizes (methenamine silver stain, ×600). (B) Black-pigmented, melanin-like material in a yeast cell wall (Fontana-Mason stain, ×600).

    Figure 1: (A) Fluorescence in situ hybridization with an ETV6 break-apart probe. The splitting of red and green signals indicates ETV6 rearrangement in mammary analogue secretory carcinoma. (B) Fluorescence in situ hybridization with an ETV6 break-apart probe. Two fusion signals are negative for ETV6 rearrangement in acinic cell carcinoma.
