To get a confident diagnosis, labs must do all they can to ensure that their IHC stains exhibit the highest standards of quality. On some days, this can be tough, and root causes for issues, hard to identify.

By utilizing the Guide to Better IHC, you can reference troubleshooting tips for common immunohistochemistry (IHC) staining issues once your staining has been optimized and validated.
