IHC Workflow: Busting the Myth of the "Ideal" Workflow
Recorded On: 09/14/2021
What is the ideal IHC workflow? Should you run your slides in batches or process them in a continuous flow? The answer of course, is that it depends. Because your lab is unique and each day is full of surprises, there may not be one ideal IHC workflow. The key instead is an adaptable workflow that matches your lab's daily needs. In this presentation, we will look at the importance of understanding what you are doing now, what tools you might use to analyze your process, and how to best decide on the right solutions for you.
