We average about 3,248 immunoslides per year. That does not include all
controls, positive and negative. We purchased a Dako autostainer and then
got one under their Reagent Acquisition program. We spend approximately
$2,000.00 per month. They keep in mind that some months we can go over
and some months we go under $2,000.00.
