[Histonet] High Complexity Testing

When a "machine" is doing the test, there are stringent provisions as to the preparation and validations of the test.
Done manually, it requires a trained technologists and, yes, they are high complexity tests (both IHC and FISH, and their variations).

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!
