RE: [Histonet] CAP Question

I would also like to add to Sally's question. Does CAP consider immuno's
as "high complexity testing"? The Her2 guidelines specifically state
that Her2 testing is "high complexity". Does that mean the reading of
the Her2 or the performance of the test? If it is the performance of the
test, where do other immuno's fit in the scheme?

Can anyone tell me if there are CAP or JCAHO requirements for staffing
in an accredited histology lab? Does CAP require that a histology
laboratory employ certified/registered HTs in order for that lab to be
accredited?  Thanks in advance.
