[Histonet] LAP Testing

From:"Thweatt, John T"

Dear Fellow Histonetters,
     Just curious, but does anyone run or do the LAP stain better known as
the Leukocyte Alkaline Phosphatase test?
     Is this something that Histology does routinely in Histology or is this
a function shared or done by other departments, or did it get delegated to
Histology like it did in our lab for one reason or another?  Is our lab
unique that we would do this test?, or is this a common practice? It seems
more hematological than histological, yet I can see the staining application
and how it would fall into histology. Just wondering?
     Thanks in advance. See some of you all in Florida.
