IOP Has Two Basic Plans


The Basic Plan

• Minimal services for a minimal fee

  • Lab proforma to show profits
  • Lab design
  • Equipment section
  • Supplies/reagent selection
  • LIS install
  • Managed care contracting/credentialing
  • Histotech recruitment
  • Policy/Procedure manuals (CLIA and TJC)
  • New laboratory launch
  • IOP project manager (on time, on spec and on budget)

• We do everything to get your lab ready to launch in 90 working days

• We hand you the keys and walk away. You are on your own from that point forward



The Comprehensive Plan

• The above, and in addition:

• Recruit a local histotech consultant at IOP expense

• Upgrade the lab manuals

• Help launch your lab

• Written compliance inspections provided monthly by a local histotech consultant until your lab is inspected by CLIA. (Thereafter, written inspections are quarterly throughout our agreement)

• Replacement histotechs provided, if needed

• Train college graduates for histotechnology work in two weeks or less

• Provide replacement pathologist coverage, if needed

• Provide quarterly laboratory utilization data reports

• Provide benchmarking studies for utilization versus other, similar sized groups


Our agreements are “at risk” with you. If you don’t get paid, neither does IOP.
