All IHC stains will include a positive control tissue

  
  • Wide-spectrum cytokeratin cocktail, used in identifying epithelium
  • This is currently the best cytokeratin available on the market, for covering the most cytokeratins
  
Tissue
  

Submit a formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue

  

Formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue block

  

FFPE tissue section mounted on a charged, unstained slide
