[Histonet] IHC turn around times

My department performs IHC, IF & In-situ testing.  Our IHC workload is the same as yours & our turn around time is: Same day results for requests received by 11:00am but I have 2 techs during the day so more than one 8 hour shift is covered. 

All orders received after 11:00 am are done the following morning.

Hope this helps,

Hello, we currently do 150-200 IHC stains/day on two automated (Ventana) systems. Our bench also supports any deeper H&E requests, as well as manual & automated special stains. 
We have 1 tech working a 7.5 hr day. We have in the past been able to provide a 1 day TAT, but are finding it very difficult to keep up with the workload etc. 
So, we were wondering what other hospitals TAT for their IHC stains are????

Thanks in advance for any info you might provide.
