[Histonet] Re: Ventana Benchmark
Our lab also considered acquiring a Ventana Benchmark (new model) so that we
could also do routine IHC's and HPV testing on thin preps and found that it
wasn't to difficult. However, I was warned that with the new unit the ER/PR
was a little tricky and if you are going to do HER2/neu also check the FDA
regulations. There was something about DAKO being the only current FDA
approved company if your including the results on a patient's report to be
used as a prognostic indicator. Please understand, this is what I was told
when I asked around just like you are doing. I didn't research it because
we found that in our situation, it was better that we maintained with DAKO
for financial and personnel reasons. I do believe that DAKO has a detection
system for HPV ISH. I'm not sure what it all entails though.
Hope this helps.
