I am looking for proficiency testing for my staff for enzyme
histochemistry. Presently we have been using a pathologist (not related
to our organization). He is planning on retiring in June. We are a CLIA
lab. I have noted EHC is not a speciality offered by HQIP. What are
other EHC labs doing if you are not CAP....and just doing this
specialty. We are a research core offering EHC and have been doing EHC
since 1982. At present we have been CLIA certified for 12 years with no
dificiencies....and want to keep it that way. Is there another lab
willing to do proficiency testing by reviewing each other's slides, and
does anyone know if that is acceptable, under CLIA? Can any
Histonetter's help us with this one! CB
