[Histonet] Endogenous Biotin and CAP regulations

From:"Stacy McLaughlin"

 Would anyone be willing to share how they address this issue, regarding
    CAP reg: ANP.22615 "If the laboratory uses an avidin-biotin complex
    (ABC) detection system (or a related system such as
    or neutravidin-biotin), is there a policy that addresses nonspecific
    false positive staining from endogenous biotin?
    We're currently using the Ventana Nexes, with biotin-streptavidin
    detection system. 
    Are there specific vendors your recommend for these reagents?
    Your answers are appreciated!
