RE: [Histonet] determining fixation time for Her 2 cases

From:"Laurie Colbert"

I figured out what time the tissue comes out of formalin on the tissue
processor and distributed times to the pathologists.  The pathologist or
PA dictates what time the specimen went into formalin - either put into
formalin by us or the time that is written on the tissue requisition by
Surgery.  When the pathologist dictates the micros, they figure out the
total fixation time, and that time is dictated into the final report.

Good afternoon!
  I am interested in how various institutes are determining formalin
fixation time on cases that go for Her 2 neu testing?  Are you using
your LIS or a tracking sheet?
  Thanks so much, I look forward to your responses...
