[Histonet] setting up immunohistochemistry


I've retired from full time employment to pursue my previous peripatetic 
existence as the Samurai Pathologist. I'm being asked to look into seeing up 
immunohistochemistry for a rather isolated solo pathology practice. The service has 
three histotechnologists, one of whom is capable of working with IHC (the 
other two are very near retirement).

1. How many billable slides a year does the service have to expect to 
produce, to justify the cost of running an IHC service?

2. There are I think three competing instruments available in the USA. Which 
of these would you suggest for a service such as the one I describe? How do 
you go about deciding among them?
