[Histonet] regarding using neg controls for H.pylori

When I had a series of cases all for the same Ab, I used to run 1 positive and 1 negative for the whole series. All the cases and those 2 controls were put together for the pathologist to review. Later those 2 controls were filed separate with the date they were run.
I never had a problem with CAP by doing that, especially because I was using and auto stainer that accounted for reliability of the run (no personal mistakes).

Good Morning,

I am sure this question has popped up before, but,  when you are running 
H.pylori by immunohistochemistry do you have to run a patient pos and 
patient neg for each patient.  If you have 10 patients do the run consist 
of 20 slides each patient having a pos and neg. What does the CAP suggest 
us to do.?  We have a debate going regarding this issue and I would like 
clarification.  I understand when we do 2 slides each  there is only one 
billable item and the neg is using reagents but cannot be reimbursed.
