You must be able to show documentation that all batch controls (this includes negative controls also) have been reviewed by laboratory director or designee and this documentation and control slides must be retained for 2 years. Remember also that if a supervisor/designee is designated by the laboratory director to review IHC controls, that this must be written in a policy.  Hope this helps.

Subject: [Histonet] CAP guidelines for immuno controls. .

Does anyone know what is required by CAP for keeping IHC controls? Is it necessary to keep a physical log of dates and batches each control is run with? Or is it enough to keep an example of the stained control in the appropriate control box? I've never been clear on this.

Any info is greatly appreciated!
