HistoQIP Biopsy Series

In an effort to serve subspeciality labs, eg histology labs specializing in dermapathology or small biopsies, the National Society for Histotechnology (NSH) and the College of American Pathologists (CAP) have partnered to offer quality assessment tools similar to the original HistoQIP program for biopsies.

The HistoQIP Biopsy Series is an additional program to improve the preparation of histologic slides in all anatomic pathology laboratories.

The NSH/CAP HistoQIP Biopsy Series will send laboratories two kits a year and asks them to prepare the following slides:

  • Bladder biopsy
  • Cervical biopsy
  • Skin punch biopsy
  • Stomach biopsy
  • Colon biopsy
  • Endometrial biopsy
  • Prostate needle biopsy
  • Skin excisional biopsy

For each set of slides submitted, participants will receive an evaluation specific to their laboratory, an educational critique, and a participant summary report that includes peer comparison data, performance benchmarking data, and information regarding best-performing procedures and techniques.
