When these guidelines were originally published, we moved some per diem hours from a Monday to a Sunday. This has assured minimum as well as maximum fixation times.

Subject: [Histonet] Breast IHC testing

I would like to know what other hospitals are doing with breast specimens that are resected on Friday and are in formalin longer than the maximum number of hours that CAP allows for ER/PR  and HER2/neu testing. We are running into this problem since we don't currently work Saturday hours.
Thank you!
