[Histonet] Batch Controls

As the laboratory Director, I can sign-off on the positive control slides or my staff can do it since I have delegated this responsibility to them.  We all use a different color pen to mark the slide(s) "O.K." so we always know who signed-off on the control slide.  All positive controls are filed by date (the date is printed on the label).  I believe that we can "back-track" (using the staining logs) to identify which machine the control was run on (if needed).

Good Morning and Happy Wednesday to everyone,

For those of you that are running batch controls with your IHC stains I have a couple of questions for you.

What is your process for review and documentation of the batch control slide?

How do you label/identify this slide for easy retrieval? (Do you identify this slide by date run or stain run)

Thanks in advance for everyone's help,
