Test Name Routine Histology Special Stains Immunohistochemistry In-situ Hybridization Direct Immunofluorescence
Description Grossing, processing, embedding, sectioning and H&E staining of NBF fixed tissue Special stains are used to differentiate some specific components that cannot be distinguished by H&E stain IHC refers to the process of detecting antigens (e.g., proteins) in cells of a tissue section by exploiting the principle of antibodies binding specifically to antigens in biological tissues In situ hybridization (ISH) is a type of hybridization that uses a labeled complementary DNA, RNA or modified nucleic acids strand (i.e., probe) to localize a specific DNA or RNA sequence in a portion or section of tissue (in situ) Immunofluorescent staining of skin samples
