[Histonet] RE: Histonet Digest, Vol 29, Issue 7

From:"Orr, Rebecca"

It would be good to have that vendor generated validation in writing.

This is only my opinion, I don't really have a reference for this.
On the installation, I would pick a broad sample of tests from your
(Maybe 10% -20% of the total?)  And have them run (either you run them
or get the TSR to run them :) on both instruments.  so you would have at
least something from your own validation process.  I don't know off the
top of my head if there is a specific protocol that must be adhered to,
when installing new equipment.
Choose antibodies with different HEIR, and Enzyme digestions, also.
I would be interested to know what anyone else would do to validate in
their lab, if there is a documented process.

Hope this helps.

We have just purchased 2 new Dako immuno stainers and I was wondering
what CAP requirements are for validation. The company says that both
instruments are validated against each other and therefore you can
validate the antibodies on either stainer. I hope this is fact.
