Thank You for Visiting Biocare Medical at NSH 2012!

Biocare Medical would like to thank you for making the 38th Annual National Society of Histotechnology in Vancouver, Canada a great success! Hundreds participated in our inaugural Histolympics, gleaning the chance to learn about immunohistochemistry and having fun at the same time.

After receiving the Biocare Olympic torch, contenders entered into a pentathlon that tested your Histolympic skills! Events included arranging IHC reagents in the proper order, pipetting reagents, loading slides into the intelliPATH™, correctly identifying staining localization and determining proper detection kits. All participants who completed the pentathlon earned a HistoChampion T-Shirt!

Each NSH regions results were tallied, with top honors going to Region IV.
