[Histonet] regarding using neg controls for H.pylori

Here we run a pos control which is on each patient slide and one Neg 
control for every block such as "A, B, Etc"  I believe this is the CAP 

You can look at all the specific guidelines by going to the CAP website 
and looking at questions ANP.22550 and ANP.22570

Hope this helps

[Histonet] regarding using neg controls for H.pylori

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.
