Chromavision ACIS (Teri Johnson)

Hi all!

I know a query was posted a couple of weeks ago about the Chromavision
Automated Cellular Imaging System. We've looked at it and were impressed by
what they say it can do. I didn't ever see any responses to the post, so
would like to know if anyone out there in Histoland is currently using it.

I'm also interested in the issue of reimbursement. Am I mistaken in
presuming that Medicare does not allow payment for IHCs which are RUO? If
this is the case, if we use those antibodies and image them with this
system, will that also disallow Medicare reimbursement? I know Ventana has
IVD primary antibodies for the breast markers. Does anybody else out there
have them?

Thanks for your help (again, as usual),
