In our lab we used to mention the antibody, the scoring method, but not the procedure.Any additional information depends on the pathologist's desire about being specific on the procedure. We never had any problems during a CAP inspection.

is anyone familiar with CAP #ANP.22925
"For IHC tests that provide independent predictive/prognostic information,
does the patient report include info on specimen processing, the antibody
clone, and the scoring method used? (e.g., hormone receptor in breast
carcinoma, HER-2/neu, EGFR).
"The lab should periodically compare its patient results with published
benchmarks, and also evaluate interobserver variabitlity among the
pathologists in the lab".
how are others handling this??
Many, many thanks in advance,
