88343 refers to subsequent antibodies placed on the same slide such as multiplex staining or the PIN-4. 

Hope that helps.

The CPT code 88342 has a new description stating it is to be used for the "first" antibody and 88343 is to be used for each additional separately identifiable antibody.  The concern is that each antibody at any point and time could be the primary or additional.
