Re: [Histonet] PT testing materials

From:Rene J Buesa

  You are not required to keep them. Remember that you stain them and your pathologists send their interpretation. Later, when you receive the results from the survey that implies that you made the test, and that is all.
  No laboratory is required to participate in the proficiency test, so CAP cannot require to keep something that you don't have if not participating.
  On the other hand, they are a very good material for residents' training and in that sense you should consult with your laboratory director before pitching them.

  Does anyone know what the CAP requirements are for retention of proficiency testing materials? I couldn't find anything on their website.
We have the IHC survey slides from 10 years back and I'd love to be able to pitch them.
