[Histonet] AMACR

From:"Orr, Rebecca"

I use P504s  (AKA) AMACR.
I have run  both the predilute and the concentrate from Biocare.
It works very well in my lab.
I also use Biocare's PIN-4 wich is a cocktail of the P504s, p63 and a
The P504s is red. The other 2 are brown (nuclear) and Brown

The advantage of the "triple stain" is especially evident when you have
one slide of a needle bx of the prostate.  You can have a look at all 3
of these stains on one slide.
I'll be glad to answer any questions you have about this privately, let
me know.

As for the designation the data sheet I have from Biocare lists P504s as
IVD.  I believe this is an updated data sheet. 
We don't list a specific disclaimer for this antibody on our reports.
I'm wondering why you would ask, in case I'm missing something!

I am researching AMACR (P504s) and need some help.  Who out there in
histo-land is using it?  Is this a Research Use Only antibody?  Is a
disclaimer in the report required?  Any input would be appreciated......
