What do the BioGenex stainer people tell you about the minimum amount of work
a clinical lab can do with an Optimax stainer and break even with it?
The Ventana people told me - maybe a year or two ago - that you can break
even with 600 "billable slides" a year. (A billable slide is one you can
charge for - excludes control slides, staining failures etc.) That's roughly
three a working day. A 5000 case a year surgical pathology service could
probably hit this if they chose to work up some of their lymphomas (about 60%
of them can be worked up by a small service, according to one hematopathology
lab I've talked with).
What corresponding numbers are you given for the BioGenex stainer?
