Good Afternoon,
There is an opportunity for our lab to run some animal tissue for a research project.  I know I need to take into consideration whether the antibodies are compatible with the species and we should be running control tissue from the same species.  Are there CAP rules about running animal tissue on an instrument that used for human clinical use?  I feel like I have heard something about this before but couldn't find it in the CAP checklist.
