Immunohistochemistry

Our Immunohistochemistry division has one of the most sophisticated specialty laboratories in the region. The methods employed involve the use of antibodies or small fragments of DNA as probes to analyze cell samples or tissue specimens and address numerous common problems in diagnostic pathology.
