French term or phrase: pot formol et cytolit 1
This appears in a pancreas endoscopic ultrasound report under the "Results" heading. Previous ultrasounds discovered a suspicious mass around the pancreas and now the patient has been referred for this endoscopic ultrasound. Here's the full context under "Results":

Positionnement dans DII, repères vasculaires en place.
Au retrait, présence d'une lésion hypo échogène assez bien limité, un peu vascularisé en doppler.
Elle mesure environ 29mm de grand axe, responsable d'un effet de masse sur le canal de wirsung (dilaté à
environ 3mm), VBP libre.
Vésicule lithiasique.
Présence d'ADP confluentes pathologiques (centre hypo échogène et taille d'environ 20mm de grand axe) péri cholédociennes.
Ponction trans bulbaire 22 G des ADP (**pot formol et cytolit 1**, peu de matériel) et ponction de la lésion 22G trans bulbaire (**pot formol et cytolit 2**, matériel dans les pots).

I take it that the adenopathies were punctured for some kind of biopsy? But I am drawing a blank on what the "pot formol and cytolit" are - I have found "cytolyt" but I am not certain that this is the same thing. As ever, your insights would be most gratefully received!

Many thanks for your help and insights! I chose "container" instead of "pot" as this seemed to be a more common choice.

agree  Anne Schulz: I wonder if a plural is implied (formalin pot 1 and Cytolyt pot 1) as I have never heard of both fixatives being used in combination/as a mixture.
