We currently have a formalin fixed tissue sample from a patient case
suspecting Autoimmune Pancreatitis and current articles suggest IHC with
IgG4 antibody.

I've tried the usual (and some unusual) reference labs to see if anyone
is offering this IHC test - so far no luck.



We're also trying to find is there is a lab (maybe more research based)
willing to do a consultation on this tissue sample.


Does anyone have any ideas?
