Optimizing the antibody is the first step of validation. Running the new protocol against previously stained cases is the second step and shows you are getting results as good as, if not better, with the new vs the old.

Just wondering what y'alls opinion is on validation:  I don't really understand why optimization isn't enough.  At that point, the pathologist has said what he wanted the stain to look like, so why do 3-10 positive slides on the new instrument to compare to previous slides from another instrument?  Thanks!
