Question from another hospital lab:

Any company out there making antibodies for IHC
for spirochetes? Treponema for syphilis and
Borrelia for Lyme disease specifically.

I have a few antibody catalogues, and didn't
see any. I know there are more companies out
there than what I have catalogues for. So I 
said I would ask the all-knowing Histonet.

The lab is considering running IHC instead of
the silver stains, hoping to eliminate the 
variability of these capricious silver stains.
(You know, tech-to-tech variability.)

Anyone have experience with IHC for spirochetes?
