Immunohistochemistry Stains

The ARUP Immunohistochemistry Laboratory performs more than 175 stains on formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissues/cellblocks. These stains are used to detect the presence, abundance, and localization of specific proteins to aid in determining the direction of differentiation in neoplasms with similar morphology as well as to provide prognostic or therapeutic information, among other applications.

This lab is pathologist oriented, providing a stain and return service only, without interpretation, to our client pathologists to assist in their diagnostic studies. Most stains are returned the next day. The available stains are listed under the Stain and Return Immunohistochemistry tab. If interpretation is needed, please order a consultation.
