Are your blocks (1 bx and 1 clot) separate specimens, or just one specimen with 2 blocks?

Greetings, Histonetters.

How many times can I charge 88313 for a bone marrow case that has an Iron stain on 2 separate blocks (one for the bx and one for the aspirate clot) and also on 1 smear made from the aspirate clot, a PAS on the 2 blocks, a Trichrome and a Retic on the bx. block, and a Wright/ Giemsa on 4 smears?

Thank you!!!
