[Histonet] The Use of Placenta in the Understanding of Perinatal Injury

From:"Featherstone, Annette"

Am looking for information on collection, fixation and storage of placentas.
Is anyone out there doing pathology on all placentas from there institution.
If so, what are you doing for storage. Do you freeze any tissue for possible
in-situ studies?
thanks in advance

Peggy,  The $450 fee is what the ASCP is charging the current AAPA
fellows for certification.  We have been told that that will be the exam
fee.  If the actual exam fee is lower then I know several hundred AAPA
fellows that pay $450 this year will be highly upset.  The new
certificates have been received by several of my fellow PA's and are
very nicely done.  You can see the fee listed on the ASCP application
at: ftp://ftp.ascp.org/Grab/PDFs/BORpdf/APPLICATIONPST.pdf
Any new news I get I will pass on to the Histonet as well.

Questions arose about the exam content and cost for the ASCP PA

There is a committee working on this (with members from ASCP, AAPA,
organizations). They expect to publish in the Spring of 2005.

I'll keep an eye on the ASCP BOR webpage, and let the histonet community
know when this information is available.

As for the cost of the PA exam - that has not been established either.
from the cost of the other tests:
- phlebotomists - $90
- technicians - $125
- technologists - $145
- specialists - $185
- diplomate (manager/supervisor) - $250

Notice, it relates to the salary - those who make more money, pay a
application fee.

I don't know where the $450 figure, mentioned in one email,  is coming
There is nothing on the ASCP BOR webpage about the PA application fee.
that mentioned figure just seems way out of line from the other fees
established. So let's just wait until the fee is published, OK?
