[Histonet] HER2 FISH

Our lab is considering performing HER2 FISH.  Presently, we are not
doing any insitu hybridization, so forgive me if I ask some very
elementary questions.  I have read the procedure for this test and is
certainly is "doable".  I do have a couple of questions, however.

If any of you are performing this test, are you doing it in conjunction
with the HER2 immuno stain, or as a stand alone test?  If you are doing
it instead of the immuno stain, what are you using for controls?

That's all I can think of now.  Thank you for any and all assistance.
