Just another note:  You can order unstained tissue microarrays with the prerequisite number of cases, both positive and negative, and stain your validation all on one slide.  I've done this for years and for 3 different validations of entire IHC platform changes, ranging from 40 to over 100 antibodies each time.  Saves time and money.

Subject: [Histonet] Antibody Validation CLIA

We've been discussing about the quantity of slides to run as a validation for IHC antibodies. We are governed by CLIA, and we would like to know if there is a set number of slides to run for a particular antibody we would like to bring in-house for Validation.  I think CAP requires 20 slides..?
And so we are asking if there is  a requirement with CLIA to run a certain number of slides, or is it up to us (the laboratory director) to decide how many slides to run for Validation/Verification.
Thank you in advance
