Immunocytochemistry (ICC)

When tumor cells are poorly differentiated, and it is not possible to determine their lineage/origin based on their appearance, we are pleased to offer ICC in-house for cytology samples when indicated. The sample required for ICC submission is simply 4 adequately cellular, unstained or stained, air-dried glass slides prepared the same way as those for standard cytologic evaluation. ICC analysis does not require overnight shipping of cells in a fluid medium (as with flow cytometric analysis) or an incisional biopsy (as with IHC).

Immunohistochemistry (IHC)

Immunohistochemisty is the use of antibodies to detect specific molecules in histologic sections of biopsy specimens and provide a more clear diagnostic picture. The IHC stains we currently offer in-house are listed below. When rare cases require additional markers, we will send slides out to other laboratories.

Our pathologists will always clearly recommend any additional staining or testing that they think would be helpful in providing the most precise diagnostic answer.
