One of the many services performed by Cytoinformatics LLC is IHC Staining analysis, an abbreviated title for Immunohistochemistry Staining. IHC Staining is a method used to determine the presence of particular antigens in cells. This is done by creating an antigen-antibody reaction that can be viewed under a microscope: when binding occurs, a dye is enzymatically deposited/conjugated to the tissue protein scaffold, allowing visualization via bright-field absorbance or fluorescence. This technique is used in slide review for the diagnosis of disease. IHC staining is frequently used for the detection of cancer and determination of the type of cancer. IHC staining may provide information regarding the stage and grade of a tumor, the type of cell and origin of metastasis to find the site of the primary tumor.
Cytoinformatics LLC performs IHC staining for both clinical and research purposes when the need to distinguish between healthy and abnormal tissue is required. IHC (Immunohistochemistry) is used for a variety of purposes: diagnosis of disease, pharmaceutical development and biological research. For example, IHC Staining is widely used in the analysis of fresh or frozen breast cancer tissue for the presence of HER2 receptors and/or hormone receptors on the surface of these cells. IHC Staining is employed in drug research as this process is able to validate drug efficacy based upon either the activity or the up- or down-regulation of disease targets.
