The CPT code book does in fact state that codes 88311-88365 and 88399 are to be added to the specimens coded 88302-88309.  However, if you read the descriptions, the codes for special srains and immuno say the word "each" in the descriptions.  the description for 88311 does not include that distinction.  I believe that only one 88311 can be charged per specimen.
Hope this helps,
