Should everyone be doing every immunoperoxidase available?  It is my
opinion that if you don't do an immunoperoxidase stain on a regular
basis, you shouldn't be doing it!  I see more problems when labs attempt
to do an IP stain when they don't get many requests for it.  I realize
that pressure may come from your pathologist(s), but you simply tell
them that we don't get enough request for this IP stain to make it
cost-effective, or that you don't have the technical expertise or
positive control material to guarantee quality control.

Is anyone running this two immunos?  I  need help getting them to work
either on the Ventana or DAKO stainers.  Also if somebody has a source
for controls, I would appreciate an address.
