About this item


Immunohistochemistry (IHC) is a branch of anatomic pathology that focuses on the identification and classification of solid tumors and hematopoietic cell lines in all types of body tissues. This lecture will outline each step of the IHC stain procedure and show the microscopic visual outcomes of a variety of IHC techniques. Additionally, there will be an introduction to the most recent advances in the field of digital pathology that facilitate the distribution of the stained images for collaborative diagnosis. It promises to be a dazzling visual display that will capture the interest of technologists and health care providers of all disciplines!

Course/Activity Information

At the end of this webinar you will be able to:

  • Describe the mechanisms of immunohistochemistry (IHC) and other similar methods of tissue staining used in anatomic pathology
  • Outline the procedure for validating IHC antibodies for diagnostic and clinical use
  • Discuss the significance of the role of antibodies in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer and other types of neoplastic and autoimmune diseases
  • Provide background information about the newest advances in digital imaging relating to IHC and other types of fluorescent staining procedures
