Because all germ cells in the perinatal rat testis immunostain intensely for VASA in the cytoplasm, we were able to use VASA immunohistochemistry to develop an objective method for measuring germ cell aggregation, based on average germ cell cluster size, in testes from control and DBP-exposed rats at E17.
As the morphological features may be subtle and variable, HHV8-LANA1 immunostain serves as a sensitive marker.
Two cases (11%) were submitted with negative immunostain results for p53 from the original institution.
The integration provides a mapping between the lab's existing antibody test directory and ImmunoQuery's extensive antibody menu, enabling pathologists to tailor immunostain orders to include antibodies available in-house whenever possible.

In one of our prior studies, we found that the combination of both basal markers as a single "cocktail" immunostain is optimal as it enhances sensitivity and limits variability compared with either antibody used separately.
Calretinin immunostain is of particular interest in inadequate biopsies because submucosa is not necessary for reliable interpretation.
The TissueInformatics TissueAnalytics(TM) software automatically determines immunostain area and intensity, enables fixed reference comparisons, and quantifies identified structural elements within tissue -- including cells, vasculature, and matrix organization -- by a range of feature metrics, such as type, shape, size and distribution.
