New Previ stainer

Recommended Posts

We just got a new Previ gram stainer/cytospin. Does anyone know what requirements are needed to get it up an running? We performed a patient correlation and are currently in 20 days of consecutive QC. I wasn't sure if the 20 days of QC were applicable for a gram stainer. Hematology just got a new wright stainer and did not have to do 20 days of QC... Just wondering. I am actually a blood banker turned microbiologist and do not know the basics of CLSI requirements...

I work in Blood Bank and we took over some micro testing when our Micro lab centralized.  We found the stainer needed way too much care and feeding. We make nicer looking stains by hand and alot faster too. Maintenace is a nightmare.
