From:Louri Caldwell (by way of Histonet)

Hi everyone,   I'm not sure if anyone else has faced this issue - but any
guidance you may provide is greatly appreciated.   This lab has been
approached to do some of the rarer special stain procedures for a local
human hospital.  Since we are a veterinary institution, we are not
certified by CAP and CLIA doesn't apply.  If we are staining the slides and
controls, but the interpretation is done elsewhere, what regulations do we
need to follow?  Do we need to go through CAP, and is that even allowed
being a veterinary institution?   This just recently came up, and
our director of course wants to be sure we have the legal protection and
applicable certification necessary should we decide to perform these
stains.   Thank you in advance for your assistance. Have a great weekend!
