From:"Horn, Hazel V"

When we used RUO antibodies we did not bill for them.  Now all of our
antibodies are IVD.

All -
A recent teleconference presenter stated that RUO antibodies are
manufactured with no required quality standards, and that in using them,
they can not be billed to the patient. I am just inquiring as to what
others in diagnostic human pathology are doing.  Additionally, there is
a CAP standard associated with the use of ASR and RUO antibodies and I
would also like to hear how others are handling this.
