Some vendors consider small trays of 5 to 10 slides to be optimal because multiple stains from the same case can be grouped and are typically released to the pathologist at the same time.
According to the company, MultiOmyx will allow pathologists to view multiple stains on a single tumour slice and analyse the data at a single-cell level.
Refrigerator panels, built-up crown moldings, multiple stains and colors on cabinets, and staggered heights all give the impression of furniture pieces in the kitchen or bath.
We have evaluated multiple stains and we have perfected the Disintegration Detection Stain to be able to isolate brain cell death.
Multiple stains are now applied across a number of slides, and all must be reviewed and compared, and intensities must be quantified with consistency and accuracy.
There are significant technical and professional costs associated with the processing and histopathologic analysis of multiple tissue sections with multiple stains for each lymph node.
This novel method of stain quantification enables several improvements over existing methods including: 1) the detection of tissue on a histological slide by automated robotic microscopes; 2) improvements to auto-focus algorithms ensuring that automated digital imaging of histological slides is confined to tissue areas only; 3) improvements to automated image segmentation and the identification of tissues and their structural features; 4) improvements to the identification of individual stains when multiple stains are used, and 5) improvements to the quantification of the extent of staining.
Throughput is greatly reduced, however, with non-multiplex-enabled systems since they require the IHC process to be repeated two or more times to achieve multiple stains.
The double immunohistochemical stain for MUC4/p53 can be a useful diagnostic tool in conjunction with the hematoxylin-eosin-stained section for pancreatic adenocarcinoma, particularly when limited tumor is available for multiple stains.
The rationale for developing the double stain in this study was that there is not always sufficient tissue available for multiple stains when performed on different slides.
