Webinar: FISH and IHC Quality Assurance The use of Reference Slides

Category: Reference Standards

Presenters: Dr. Jonathan Frampton, Product Manager - Diagnostics, Horizon Discovery

Clinical laboratories are routinely using immunohistochemistry (IHC) and fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) for accurate assessment of patient samples to determine the gene expression profile of oncogenes. The antibody or probe choice for FISH or IHC respectively can be a challenge for the laboratory as each choice may have a different specificity for particular genotypes.

Horizon Diagnostics has developed a portfolio of FISH and IHC Reference Slides that have been adopted into the workflow of a number of research laboratories. Data generated in these laboratories will be presented and discussed.
