Immunohistochemistry (IHC) labeling using routine, published and novel methods are also offered to our clients. Our extensive experience has enabled us to successfully develop new immunolabeling methods for paraffin and plastic-embedded sections that ensure clean results, even when using species-mismatched antibodies on tissue that contains implants. Our developed methods include immunolabeling of ground sections taken from methyl-methacrylate-embedded tissues containing medical devices.
Radiographs enable visualization of new bone and implants and can be taken of small or large specimens (e.g., spines and femurs containing total hip replacements) with our state-of-the-art x-ray and digital processing equipment. Digital processing can also provide a powerful analytical tool for our clients who have a need to evaluate bone density.
