I used to routinely do about 40 slides per day manually. Now I can easily do 
96 slides (two runs on a Dako stainer) each day.

At a hospital where I supervised the immuno section we had one senior tech 
supervising the section and two techs rotating in to do the bulk of the 
staining. We did about 150 slides a day, manually.

This question directed to Immunohistochemistry labs that have a
subsection or seperate section seperate from the Histology Section.  How
many people do you have to run your immunostains.....without
compromising quality and overstressing the technologists.  Please give
me your experience as the number of slides each technologist can do per
day either automated and/or manually.

My Experience: Automated 45-50 slides...Manually 25-30 slides.

Thanks in Advance!
