Fixed in 10 % neutral-buffered formalin for 18-24 hours
Embedded in immunohistochemical grade paraffin
Standard specimen size of 0.5 x 1 x 1 cm, vary depending on the tissue type
Medaysis' products are sold for research use only, not for in vitro diagnostic use.
MedaFluo™ and DuoFluo™ immunofluorescence detection kits are designed with proprietary non-biotin signal amplification technology to locate primary antibodies on cell smears, formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded section (FFPE) or cryostat sections. The fluorophore conjugated secondary antibodies included in the kits are pre-absorbed to minimize cross reactivity. The fluorophores used for conjugation deliver bright fluorescence intensity and photo-stability.
IHC integrates anatomical, immunological and biochemical techniques to detect the presence of target antigens and visualize the spatial distribution and localization of specific biomarkers and differentially expressed proteins in the proper tissue context.
Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)
The Ultra-Sensitive Mutation Detection Kits are Clonal Differential Amplifier PCR (CloDiA™ PCR) methods designed with novel and proprietary mutation enrichment technology that is able to detect less than 1% common somatic mutations in the genes. The specially designed set of primers enables specific amplification of target sequence with point mutations or insertion/deletion. Subsequent analysis with Sanger sequencing is easy and straightforward. The assays work for various types of samples such as FFPE tissues, cell smears, FNA or pleural effusion specimens.
