The Missouri Society for Histotechnology (MHT) is having a Fall Lunch n Learn sponsored by CellMarque.

***Present a Fall Lunch n' Learn***
Basic IHC and Troubleshooting
Workshop designed to improve basic IHC knowledge and uncover what goes on "behind the scenes" inside your IHC
automated platform. It will touch on different types of detection, explaining the advantages and disadvantages of each
along with how to determine the best one for your assay. Common causes of suboptimal staining and troubleshooting
will be discussed. The session will open up to participants' troubleshooting questions for group discussion. (3 CEU)

Cancer and Antibody Challenge
Get a glimpse at how IHC comes into play for a patient. This workshop will be a fun, interactive look at how IHC are
used by pathologists. Discussion will be geared for an audience with a basic to intermediate level of IHC understanding.
Types of cancers and statistics will be discussed along with frequently used panels and their interpretation. We will touch
briefly on some of the more advanced algorithms as well. We will present real life scenarios accompanied with various
clues and staining results, and allow the audience to use their newly acquired knowledge of panel usage to decide what
markers might be helpful. At the conclusion of this talk, the audience will have seen for themselves how important IHC
can be, and also how panels can be a great tool to assist pathologists with finding an accurate diagnosis. (3 CEU)
