Multiplex IHC technology was developed to simultaneously detect two or more antibodies in about the same time as it takes to do a single antibody IHC procedure. This has been a critical success in the clinical laboratory. A single Multiplex IHC can replace up to five single antibodies, reducing labor and reagent costs by > 50%. A key feature of this technology is that precious patient tissue is conserved while simultaneously testing for morphology distinct markers. This results in the generation of superior diagnostic data of increased predictive value as well as reducing time to result. The results are clear: Multiplex IHC is easy to interpret and gives additional information to pathologists while increasing their confidence in the results.
This workshop will feature three speakers who will review the use of this technology in the assessment and diagnosis of breast, prostate, and lung carcinomas:
