Hello Histonet~

I work for a facility that is about to demo a DAKO IHC Stainer.  The rep
called us yesterday and told us that the CAP had just issued a new
regulation stating that steamers could no longer be used for heat incuded
epitope retreival (HIER).  He is in the process of getting the information
for us, as well as the substitute method; but I have yet to see any
documentation.  Has anyone else heard about this?  He apparently just
learned about it himself last week-end, so it is something very new.  Will
be anxious to get some feed-back.
