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

Submit a formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue


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


FFPE tissue section mounted on a charged, unstained slide


Ambient (preferred)

  • Unlabeled/mislabeled block
  • Insufficient tissue
  • Slides broken beyond repair
AHL - Immunohistochemistry

1 - 2 days

Immunohistochemical staining and microscopic examination


If requested, an interpretive report will be provided
