Immunohistochemistry detects antigens or haptens of cells according to the specific binding of antibodies and antigens in biological tissues. IHC is an important application of monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies to determine the tissue distribution of antigens of interest in health and disease. Therefore, it is widely used in cancer diagnosis because specific tumor antigens are de novo expressed or upregulated in certain cancers. In addition, IHC also plays an important role in pathology, especially tumor pathology, neuropathology, and hematopathology.
IHC exploits immunological and biochemical techniques to examine different tissue sections by using labeled antibodies that interact with target antigens. CD BioSciences now offers various IHC solutions and multiple antibody staining protocols to generate informative IHC images, allowing the visualization of cells’ unique cellular components.
This new immunohistochemical strategy consists of two phases: 1) the slide preparation and reaction phase and 2) the interpretation and quantification phase of the obtained expression. Additionally, the five critical steps of IHC are sample preparation, antigen retrieval, background blocking, target detection, and sample visualization. Researchers can apply this new technology to accelerate the study of genetics, brain trauma, neurodegenerative disorders, and muscle diseases. It can also be used in deposition of beta-amyloid and cytoplasmic accumulations of alpha-synuclein.
“With extensive work experience in the field of bio-imaging, our team is focused on innovating imaging technology to expedite scientific breakthroughs and ultimately help patients,” said one of the marketing staff at CD BioSciences. “With the launch our IHC technology, we are well on our way to help scientists in the field of cancer diagnosis and pathology, accelerating research process and potentially saving more lives. Furthermore, we’ll continue to improve our imaging technology and expand our offerings to customers.”
