CD31 by IHC
  
12376 - Technical only, 12379 - Technical & interpretation
  
LAB12376
LAB12379
  
Anti-human endothelial cell
  

All IHC stains will include a positive control tissue

  
  • CD31 is a very sensitive and specific marker for endothelial differentiation, and is probably the first choice for vascular markers in studying benign and malignant vascular tumors
  • CD31 reacts weakly with mantle zone B cells, peripheral T cells, and neutrophils
  • In cryostat sections and blood smears, CD31 also labels megakaryocytes, platelets, and some plasma cells
