Author: Jim Burchette, HT(ASCP)
Reviewer: M. Lamar Jones, BS, HT(ASCP)

Course provided by LabCE.

This course discusses various entities that cause infectious diseases. These entities are identified in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) human tissue by use of specific primary antibodies and immunohistochemical (IHC) techniques. IHC procedures, including chromogenic substrates, enhancement techniques, and alternative methodologies are also discussed.
