Yes, IHC/ISH is considered high complexity testing.  Sounds like you have a real gem for a pathologist...sorry to hear that.  Just don't let him/her pay you like a janitor just because that's what he/she thinks that is what you are.

Subject: [Histonet] High Complexity Testing

Hello All,

I would really appreciate it if anyone has information on whether IHC/ISH
are considered high complexity testing for histotechs.  Our pathologist
believes that ALL histology low complexity testing since a "machine" is
doing the work.  Can anyone help me out with some guidelines, literature,
etc. that says otherwise?  I would really appreciate it.  We just want to
know which one it is.

Thanks so much Histoland!
