Hey Tony,

We are using VMS antibodies (2 are manufactured by CellMarque) on our Ultras.  We've had to go with the Optiview detection to get satisfactory results.  Let me know if you'd like our protocols.

Subject: [Histonet] MSI on Ventana

We have previously been sending our MSI Abs to another lab where they are being performed on the Bond.  We have now been informed that we are to do our own and one of my IHC staff with previous experience in another lab informs me that they do not work as well on the Ventana platforms that we are currently running.  Is ther anybody out there successfully staining MSI on the Ventana.  If so what brand/clone of Abs are you using?  We are trying to avoid using the Ventana RTU Abs due to cost.
