Immunocytochemistry Techniques and Advances in Dermatopathology
Recorded On: 05/24/2023
In this webinar we concentrate on the application of immunocytochemistry (IHC) techniques within the field of dermatopathology, involving heat mediated antigen retrieval steps, antigen detection systems, signal amplification procedures, and double labelling as well as esoteric IHC techniques involving ‘bleaching’ procedures for the evaluation of melanocytic lesions followed by IHC staining. Consideration will be given to the range and scope of automated IHC staining platforms available. Finally it will be explained how these developments have found a niche within the field of dermatopathology at both the light and electron microscope levels. Emphasis will be given to how best to optimize the amount of useful information that can be obtained from any given sample and will be a focus and goal of this webinar.
CEUs: This histology course is worth 1 continuing education credit. Course is available for 365 days from date of live airing.
