Lab Services Available for IHC, IF, ISH & FISH
CAP/CLIA accredited facility with capabilities spanning frozen and FFPE sections; Biocare can accommodate ‘on demand’ custom work on other samples types. Sections can be provided directly by the researcher or cut in our lab. IHC assay optimization including development of antibody cocktails to facilitate multiplex staining. Micro-polymer based detection chemistries with high sensitivity and specificity optimized for a variety of species including human, monkey, rodent, rabbit, dog and cat.
Optimization of ISH assay conditions using your probe or custom Biocare design to your desired target. Complete assay development, implementation and training in your laboratory. Multiplex IHC and ISH assay feasibility and optimization. Combination gene and protein expression assays utilizing simultaneous multiplexing on a single slide.
Probe design, assay optimization and FISH staining on FFPE, blood and cytological fluids. Patent-pending DelTECT™ multicolor platform for deletion detection improves accuracy by reducing false positive deletion readouts due to truncation artifacts. Improved labeling technology and use of CGH and Patient Cohort data results in ‘tight and bright’ probes designed to reduce both false negatives and false positives. Samples can be sent as FFPE blocks, blood films or cytological preparations of body fluids including urine.
