Notification of changes to Histology Staining

Haematoxylin and eosin platform change.

We are changing our platform for the haematoxylin and eosin stain used for all routine histopathology cases to the Roche HE600 platform from Monday 4th September 2017. This is to allow us to improve the workflow and traceability of reagents used.

The existing platform will remain in use as contingency and for macro slide staining.

During slide review at MDT meetings you may notice a difference in the tone of the staining.
This new platform will be assessed by UKAS against ISO 15189 standards at our next annual inspection in October.

For further information about this change please contact the department on 0121 424 3188 and ask to speak to a senior member of staff.

Laboratory Information System Migration

Laboratory Information System Migration
In order to bring systems in line with the restructured laboratory services the Laboratory Medicine directorate will be migrating to new Laboratory Information System Databases for Blood Sciences and Microbiology.
 
The migration is due to commence at 8am Monday 2nd June.
 
No downtime is anticipated but there may be some temporary disruption as the migration progresses.
 
The Blood Sciences System will replace what is currently the separate disciplines of Chemistry, Haematology and Immunology as a single department. As such the ICE Reporting System will display reports as Blood Sciences (Orange highlighting).
