Re Turnaround times

From:"ian clarke" (by way of Histonet)

Dear All
Thanks for all the information on the trimming around the edges of the
tissue cassette.I have been asked to gather some information about
turnaround times for Immunohistochemistry.At present in our laboratory we
cut the sections one day leave overnight in an oven at 55c and then they are
put onto the Ventana Nexes for staining the next morning 24 hour lag.We
mainly do microwave HEIR

1 Does your pathologist receive their immuno the same day it is requested?
2  If so what time  is your cut off for receiving immuno requests from the
3 How many immuno slides would you stain/day?
4 Is your HEIR mostly Pressure cooker or Microwave?
5  Is there any difference in time scale between a Ventana Nexes and
Benchmark ( for us it would mean we would not have the 24 hours overnight in
the oven/and no microwave HEIR.)
6 What are the minimum and maximum times for your HEIR

7 On a side issue what time would first H&E biopsies/cases be going to the
pathologist?( how many cases)
Thanks again
Ian Clarke
