Usually those charges are included with the cost of producing a finished
product. For instance, If you receive a wet-tissue sample and produce a
set of slides and then send out a report, all the work that the process
takes is included in the cost.

If necessary, you can break it down into logical sets, such as the cost
of producing an H&E from wet tissue; the cost of doing a special stain
if the slide is provided; the cost of cutting and staining if a block is
provided; the cost of accessioning and reporting on slides only.

You could then set up some standard charges for the typical
consultations your lab does.

Subject: Technical Charges

Could anyone out  there tell me if they have technical charges attached
consultation? I know that of course there is a professional charge for
Consultation and report on referred slides prepared elsewhere (88321),
our medical service group would bill for those. I'm wondering about
capturing charges on the hospital side for the personnel who are paid by
hospital who do the accessioning, transcription of the report and the
of materials. Also the cost of all materials involved in this process.
Any thoughts?
