Do as I did: observe yourself (or somebody else for that matter) doing the FS and write down all things used. Do it repeatedly (as many times as possible); obtain an average usage for each item and then go to the prices you pay for each item as you purchase ut, extrapolate to your actual usage rate and there you have it: $/slide or $/procedure.
  Hope this will help you.
  Under separate cover I am sending you an article on costs I just finished.

  Hello fellow netters! I have posed the "what do I charge for technical help" on frozens but now I need the supply cost. How would you break down a cost per case, for slides, OCT, blades, towels, cassettes, Cytocool, ink, etc.? We're talking like 10-12 blocks frozen in a month's time (for an outside surgicenter skin case) using our hospital supplies. We are trying to draw up a contract to charge the Pathologist for using our services. 
Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance!
