[Histonet] Question - HercepTest

From:"Richard Cartun"

For those of you who are using Dako's HercepTest kit for the IHC detection of HER2 in breast CA, has Dako changed the interpretation guidelines?  Meaning is "2+" now called "Equivocal" (as recommended by the ASCO/CAP guidelines published in January of this year) or is it still considered "Positive"?  Thanks.
