I would be interested in how you verify the performance of the xylenes and alcohols as well.  Thank you in advance.

Hi All,

Will some of you that are inspected by the NYDOH please email me with how you
meet the requirement (below) for performance verification for alcohol, xylene
and formalin?
Clinical Laboratory Standards of Practice, Part 1- General Systems; Reagents

The standard states that the inventory log should include the following
information: lot numbers, expiration dates, the date of receipt in the
laboratory, date of performance verification and the date the material is
placed in service, it is a requirement.
