Re: CAP Question

From:Richard Cartun

We get a print-out of all immunoperoxidase (and immunofluorescence)
requests (by case #) every day.  Once all the slides have been completed
and organized, I sit down with all the immunoperoxidase slides and
review them (including controls).  I then go back to the daily IP log
and indicate (in writing) whether the positive controls were acceptable.
 If there is a problem (+ control negative, tissue loss, etc.), the
problem is noted and a repeat stain ordered.  the logs are kept on file.
 This system has satisfied all CAP inspectors.

Can someone explain the following CAP question?  What should we be
doing to comply with this question?

ANP:22850  Are daily records maintained of the quality of
immunohistochemical preparations?

                  NOTE:  This refers to the daily output of the
laboratory and not necessarily to individual slides.
