   I  had the same kind of questions and I talked to a CLIA person on the
   phone.   It  was  explained  to  me  that  if  your  measurements  and
   descriptions  becomes part of the pathology report, then you are doing
   complex  testing.   So,  if all you do is measure or weight a specimen
   and  put  the whole thing in a cassette you must be qualified to do so
   by CLIA standards.
