Per CAP guideline, in our reports of predictive markers(ER/PR/Her2), Pathologists need to check that the total fixation time of specimens is within the CAP guideline. Is this information readily available to the pathologists at the time of writing the report? How are others documenting this?

Have a great weekend.
