Your " I think this is a high volume for only two people" is an
understatement!  We have two techs also and cut/stain anywhere from 20 -
150 slides/day on a 7:30 - 4 pm shift and there are times when we're
pulling our hair out.   Your techs must be completely over the edge; get
them some help.

Subject: [Histonet] Staffing for IHC

I'm hoping some of the larger hospitals out there will share their data
with me. I'm curious as to how labs are staffed for doing IF/IHC/CISH. 
A small portion of our staining protocols still require pretreatment by
hand, but we run instruments that do the pretreatments on board for the
majority of our stains. We have 2 IHC techs, 1 on 1st shift and 1 on 3rd
shift.Together they are cutting and staining between 200-350 slides per
day. I think this is a high volume for only two people. What do you all
