I would totally agree Angela.  Without knowing all the details, I'd bet
these people are plenty busy all day everyday.  I'd worry about burning
them out.  And what happens when one or the other is sick or needs a

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 think?
