Hi Histonetters,                                                                                                                                  6-19-15

We are wondering what the average turnaround times for IHC are for other labs.  We use the Biocare Intellipath instrumentation. It holds up to 50 slides ( 10 slides per 5 racks) with continuous feed per open rack.  All IHC orders placed by 12pm are usually out the same day by 5pm. We average 434 IHC slides per month and have a staff of 3 FTE's.

A pathologist has voiced concerns over our IHC output.  We are trying to determine "best practices" for IHC turnaround time as measured from time order placed to time of slide delivery.

If you could respond with your IHC TAT including number of techs and average of IHC slides monthly, we would appreciate any input you may be able to provide.

Thank you in advance,

Dawn Olszewski, HTL(ASCP)QIHC
