What type(s) of stainers do you have ? We have the VIP and autostainer which do the job. I don't know the best combination of automation / histotechs. I'd have  all manual ops just to keep clear of the mouthy Australians ! Arrogance piled on attitude frosted with sarcasm  topped with a dollop of  condecension !

We have a dedicated IHC/ISH lab with 2 full-time techs (an HT and an
MT). We have 3 automated stainers capable of doing 70 slides. Our
stated TAT is 24 hours which we most often meet or exceed. Biopsies in
by 9am we attempt to have out the same day.

Subject: [Histonet] All,

We are interested in knowing how some of you handle the volume of
Immunhistochemistries in your department if you are limited by staff and
autostainers. Do you have cut off times for ordering; do you prioritize
the work or do you have a turn around time that must be met and what is
this time from ordering to finished slides.
We have two autostainers that can only handle 20 slides each and
10-15% of the volume is performed manually. One tech of two rotates
into this lab. 
I appreciate any help you can give me.
Thank you,
Pat Karlisch
