Doesn't sensitivity mean that it will stain all of 'it', even that which
isn't 'it'. Specificity means that it only stains 'it' but sometimes not all
of 'it'.

Can anyone help with a concise definition of "sensitivity" and "specificity"
as it relates to immunohistochemical reactions.


Thanks and regards,   Laurie.
