Yes please post my question.
I am interested in knowing 2 things:
1.	Is there any regulation under CLIA or some other body that specifies
how long you must keep stained IHC slides/images?
2.	How long do the IHC stained slide needs to be stable for?

	Thank you,

For IF, we take pictures and store the image as the slides fade anyway, as
far as DAB substrate we keep the slides forever as they do not fade, I will
post your question to the histonet for feedback if you like.

I was wondering if you could direct to me a source of
information that can
tell me how long a laboratory is required to store IHC slides?
I thought there were minimums stability requirements after a
slide has been
through the IHC procedure.  Is there a different minimum
requirement for
colorimetric IHC vs. immunoflourescence?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
