    This presentation will introduce the concept of analytical reference standards for immunohistochemistry, provide some examples of the different technology as well as examples of their use.

    Since its inception, immunohistochemistry (IHC) has been called a “stain” principally because of its origin as a byproduct of traditional histochemistry. Simply, a tool to identify specific targets in cells and tissues that could not be distinguished by traditional morphologic or histochemical techniques. There is a great deal of controversy surrounding this notion. A recent editorial by B. Magnani and C. Taylor has brought the issue back to forefront of the histopathology community. Over the last 25 years, IHC has evolved into a complex testing modality. IHC has developed into a “test” that requires both qualitative AND quantitative interpretation, ushering in the era of companion diagnostics. Unfortunately, IHC test quality assurance is still grounded in subjective pass/fail interpretation based on non-standardized control tissues that are insensitive and irreproducible. The major obstacle has been the lack of appropriate tools to assess assay performance during the analytical phase, similar to what is done in clinical pathology laboratories. However, IHC calibration technology is now available that can establish analytical standardization that will help address both interpretive and technical errors, perhaps providing a means to better understand pre- and post-analytical phases. This presentation will introduce the concept of analytical reference standards for immunohistochemistry, provide some examples of the different technology as well as examples of their use.

    This webinar will review TCs and their potential impacts.

    Histologists and surgical pathologists are familiar with the phenomenon of the tissue contaminant (TC) or floater.  Although TCs are unusual events, and the majority of contaminants are fragments of benign tissue they often receive limited attention until an error occurs.  This webinar will review TCs and their potential impacts.

    This webinar will introduce three areas: diagnosis, research, and education, where histology play an important role in Vet Medicine.

    Histology plays a pivotal role in Veterinary Medicine and histotechnologists are indispensable. For example, veterinary pathologists at the University of Missouri’s Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Laboratory read more than 10,000 biopsy cases and more than 1,000 autopsy cases annually, and all tissue samples are proficiently prepared by histotechnologists. Many scientists in the College of Veterinary Medicine and across the campus use histological analysis to accelerate scientific discoveries. Histology is also an integral part of education in Vet School and is utilized in various areas including study of diseased tissues for students and residents. In this webinar, I will introduce three areas: diagnosis, research, and education, where histology play an important role in Vet Medicine.

    This presentation will describe how the R&D Imaging Platform at AstraZeneca is managed/led. The Imaging Platform contains automatic pipelines that can copy images from multiple instruments, by different vendors, located across the globe, to the cloud (Amazon Web Services in this case).

    This presentation will describe how the R&D Imaging Platform at AstraZeneca is managed/led. The Imaging Platform contains automatic pipelines that can copy images from multiple instruments, by different vendors, located across the globe, to the cloud (Amazon Web Services in this case). Metadata is automatically extracted from barcodes, text on labels, databases and other third-party systems and is written to a database. Scientists, and other user users can then search for these images, using the metadata, in a web application or via an API. We automatically perform QC on these images and automatically push these images into analysis tools like Halo. This system is used in a GLP compliant lab.

    Spatial-transcriptomics technologies have become more accessible and popular with the commercial release of products from companies such as 10x Genomics, Curio, Nanostring, and Vizgen, to name a few.

    Spatial-transcriptomics technologies have become more accessible and popular with the commercial release of products from companies such as 10x Genomics, Curio, Nanostring, and Vizgen, to name a few. This session will first describe the differences between the currently available products and then go into the details of how they each work. We will also discuss the critical steps that need to be taken before the block of tissue is sectioned all the way to post-placement on the slide. We will wrap up the session by discussing creating partnerships with genomics cores to enable a smooth transition between technologies. This will be an informative session that will encourage questions and dialogue about what people might be encountering.

    The criteria of AFB staining methods will be reviewed and troubleshooting suggestions provided to support reliable and consistent AFB staining results in the histology laboratory.

    The ABCs of AFB A. Acid Fast Bacteria (AFB): Acid fast is a physical property of certain bacteria, rendering these bacteria resistant to decolorization by acids in staining procedures. The significance of this acid fast property, the different types of AFB, and methods of testing for acid fast bacteria will be discussed. B. Background: The historical background of AFB staining will be introduced and include Ziehl-Neelsen and Kinyoun stains, along with the Fite stain for Mycobacterium leprae. C. Criteria: The criteria of AFB staining methods will be reviewed and troubleshooting suggestions provided to support reliable and consistent AFB staining results in the histology laboratory.

    Successful tissue processing, microtomy, and staining all rely on proper fixation, and the patient’s diagnosis hinges on a quality slide that that pathologist is capable of interpreting.

    Formalin fixation is by far the most common form of fixation used in histology laboratories around the world, and it is a fundamental part of the entire histology process. Fixation has an impact on essentially ever downstream step in the histology process. Successful tissue processing, microtomy, and staining all rely on proper fixation, and the patient’s diagnosis hinges on a quality slide that that pathologist is capable of interpreting.
