Immunohistochemistry CLIA regulations

From:"Suchie, Diane" <>


I'm trying to find the exact regulations governed by CLIA specifically for
immunohistochemistry only!  I've gotten bogged down trying different search
engines with no specifics for this department.

During their visits, different inspectors have inquired on procedures not on
our checklists.  I'm sorry to say that the current management at our
facility does not understand the complexity nor the QC required to run an
immuno division within the histology department at an acceptable level of
expected standards of excellence.

NCCL has articles on this subject at a cost I'm unwilling to divy out if
another avenue for obtaining this information is available.

Please help ASAP!

Thank you,
