Controls - The Importance of Accurate Control Use in Pathology
Wed, July 28, 2021 9:00 AM - 9:30 AM PDT
Tissue controls are imperative for the validation of immunohistochemical staining results. They help determine the accuracy of the assay. Without the proper use of controls in the laboratory, interpretation of staining would be arbitrary and provide results of doubtful value. In this presentation, we will take a dive into the standardization of tissue controls and how to choose the best option for your lab.Register Today

Wed, August 4, 2021 9:00 AM - 9:30 AM PDT
In this webinar we will discuss the evolution of prostate markers, from early IHC antibodies to the emerging advancements of prostate carcinoma identification. We will review the basic IHC tests that are requested as well as the more complex stains.Register Today
Using the Brain to Understand Neuropathology
Wed, August 11, 2021 9:00 AM - 9:30 AM PDT
In this webinar, we will discuss the anatomy of the brain and the common tumors that are developed in the respective tissues. We will also focus on the respective antibodies that are used to discern these tissue types.Register Today
Cancer in Hollywood 2021
Wed, August 18, 2021 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM PDT
In this webinar we discuss these examples of celebrity cancer battles, and how immunohistochemistry plays a key role in making the appropriate diagnosis and determining the best course of action. This talk will give an overview of some of these novel markers used in these high-profile cases and how they fit into the specialty panels with the traditional antibodies.Register Today
Microsatellite Instability and Mismatch Repair – A Overview of Mismatch Repair and the Outcome of Microsatellite Instability
Wed, August 25, 2021 9:00 AM - 9:30 AM PDT
This webinar will summarize the role of mismatch repair and microsatellite instability in various disease processes. It will also identify various diagnostic tools commonly used for evaluation of patient specimens.
Always Be Prepared: Gear Check!
This presentation will cover recent developments in novel immunohistochemistry testing; the gear that can serve the adjunct diagnostic pathology “backpack” in this new decade and beyond. Specific markers reviewed include: IDH1 R132H, INSM1, CDK4, MDM2, SF-1, and more.Watch Recording
Case Studies in Pathology
Case studies are records of clinical practices that can be used as teaching tools for practitioners and students. The IHC tests that are run as adjunct tests to the H&E can give a lot of helpful information to the pathologist. In this webinar, we look at some examples of these case studies and the influence that IHC may have on them.Watch Recording
Basics of IHC
Join the webinar for a recap on the basics of IHC. We will go over all steps of IHC from fixation all the way to counterstaining and cover slipping. You will learn how the different types of antibodies are produced and their strengths and weaknesses. We will also discuss the chemistry in immunohistochemistry and take a look at how detection systems produce the stain we see.Watch Recording
Skin Deep - A Comprehensive Look at Advanced Diagnostics in Dermatopathology
This webinar provides an overview of the diagnostic tests used in a dermatopathology laboratory. From start to finish, I will discuss H&E, special stains, and the advanced impact of Immunohistochemistry and the ongoing development of new antibody assays.Watch Recording
The Science of Staining: Infectious Microbes in Color
This webinar reviews stains and dyes, with special attention given to techniques and reagents that are highly valuable for routine as well as advanced staining of infectious agents. You will learn about recommended in-demand reagents as well as their application in staining of infectious agents.
Troubleshooting - Pre-analytic Processes in Surgical Pathology A Review of the Tissue Specimen’s Journey from Patient to Slide
This webinar will provide an overview of the numerous processes undertaken from time of excision of tissue specimen through cutting of tissue sections. The downstream impact of standardization of pre-analytic processes will be discussed.Watch Recording
Troubleshooting - A Technical Guide on IHC Staining
Technical staining issues within the IHC Lab are common when optimizing a new antibody. The purpose of this lecture is to help technicians identify changes in process and quickly correct any staining errors.Watch Recording
