[Histonet] CAP surveys for IHC.....

Hello all,

I was wondering which IHC surveys you folks subscribe to.  For years we have
done the Immunhistochemistry survey.  This year I also did the MTTB (PM1,
PM2, PM3, & PM4).  I wasn't going to buy the MTTB one again because it is
the same antibodies that I did this year (CD20, EGFR, CD117, ER).
Apparantly these are the only antibodies covered by the MTTB.  

I understand the reason behind doing these surveys and that they serve
different purposes.  Since I've already done the 4 MTTB and since each of
those antibodies are at one time or another used in the Immunohistochemistry
survey, I really don't see the need to buy the MTTB survey again if it is
going to be the same antibodies.

So that's my question.....  Do you folks do both?  One or the other?  Or
something else?

Thanks in advance.
