Subject: [Histonet] Multiple IHC on Sentinel Nodes

Good Morning to All,
We do cytokeratin IHC on all blocks from the sentinel node specimen.  Sometimes we have had up to 12 blocks from the sentinel node specimen.  SO, given the previous information on Histonet, can we bill 88342 x 12 on a sentinel node when all blocks from that specimen are being stained.  Or is it 88342 x 1???
