The immunohistochemical stains are based on antibodies that bind specifically to antiges, thus enabling aidentification and characterization of a specific antigen.

The tests are carried out using a wide range of immunohistochemical stains in order to provide an accurate identification creating a full and detailed picture.

Immunohistochemical stains are coplex and constitute an important level of a clinical diagnostic process. They are cerried out by highly advanced equipment while followed by strict supervision and quality control.

The Immunohistochemical departement in L.E.M is managed by Mrs.Meira Kaufman, MSc.
