[Histonet] Re: IHC validation

From:"John Auld"


In the UK there is a National EQA scheme, which also has non UK based labs
enrolled, for IHC. There are several schemes run by the body, eg general,
lymphoma, cytology, breast etc. EQA participation is a requirement for
accreditation in the UK and if the inspectors think we should be in more or
different schemes will register this as a non compliance. The EQA body also
run meetings and workshops.

     Does anyone send their positive control tissue to another lab for
validation of their immuno staining?
     The path that is over the immuno area wants me to varify the use of my
patient controls by sending to another lab to show that these controls are
positive by another source.
     Has anyone been CAP inspected and asked if they do this? Seems he
thinks an inspector is going to ask this.
