Vector Laboratories has announced its new five-part video training series on immunohistochemistry (IHC). 'Become an IHC Expert (and Avoid Common Pitfalls)' is being released online, one segment per day. Access to the training series is free of charge, and topics covered include how to select reagents depending on experimental priorities, how to use ancillary reagents to improve results, how to optimise the protocol, and when to use advanced detection protocols.
“Achieving crisp, sensitive IHC staining can be challenging,” explains Dr Melissa Rebar, director of marketing for Vector Laboratories. “An important part of optimising an IHC assay is selecting the appropriate reagents. With this training series we help scientists understand the variables to consider when planning an experiment, and choosing the reagents that satisfy the criteria. Applying the effort up front saves time, resources and potential frustrations.”
The new training series is taught by Erika Leonard, director of quality control at Vector Laboratories.
