We switched to IHC for H. Pylori years ago.  Nobody was happy with the
stains we used before.  IHC makes it so easy with almost zero repeats
(assuming your control has bugs).  We do them everyday and probaly 25 -35
per week.

Hello Histonetters,


I was wondering if anyone out there is doing immuno staining routinely
on all gastric bx's?  We are considering this in my lab, but I have my
reservations. If some of you do, how many a week?  And those who don't,
why not?  I will be doing a literature search on this topic, but if
anyone knows of a specific article I sure would appreciate it if you
could share it with me.


Thank you,


Ruth Cazares
