RE: [Histonet] HT ( QIHC QUESTION)

From:"Lee & Peggy Wenk"

ASCP is the organization that has the QIHC exam, not NSH. The people who
write the exam questions are pathologists and histotechs (who are ASCP and
NSH members). For information about the eligibility routes, go to:

It looks like you might qualify under route 2, if you also meet the
experience requirements:

Route 2: ASCP technician certification (HT, MLT) and twelve months full time
acceptable experience in immunohistochemistry in the U.S., Canada or a
CAP/The Joint Commission (JCAHO)/AABB accredited laboratory within the last
five years

Applicants must have experience in the following areas:

Immunohistochemical and/or Immunofluorescence Preparations - All of the
following should have been performed by the applicant: 
- Staining technique 
- Selection of proper control material 
- Titration of immunologic reagents 
- Quality Assurance
The applicant should have participated in Quality Assurance related to all
of the following: 
- Specimen fixation, processing, microtomy 
- Reagent selection, preparation, storage, disposal 
- Method selection, validation, documentation 
- Quality control 
- Safety
