[Histonet] Slide labels used with IHC Instruments

Actually, Jean it's a different story for Leica.

With Ventana you HAVE to use THEIR labels.  That's not the case with Leica.
Succinctly, this means that you can use your LIS labels on a slide and the
Lecia will read them and that's that.

On the Ventana equipment, the slide MUST have the VENTANA slide label on the
slide.  Some powerpath users have gotten the powerpath barcode on the
Ventana slide label and we're about to try and  place our LIS slide label on
the back of the slide.

Purely, and I mean PURELY, from a labeling process, I would argue that the
Leica is better suited for process flow.

While our lab doesn't have the Ventana stainer I am assuming that the
principle is the same for the Leica Bond.  We are using slide labels
generated from PowerPath on our slides for the Bond
Immunostainer.without any issues.  We do have an interface in place.
