RE: immunohistochemistry books/

From:"Morken, Tim"


Obtaining, catloging and QA of controls for IHC is not covered very well in
any book I have seen. It is an ad hoc proposition done differently in every
lab. The CAP guidelines are a good starting point ((, but you
may get a better handle on the process by reading the following references:

"The Total Test Approach to Standardization of Immunohistochemistry", an
editorial by C.R. Taylor in Archives of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine,
vol 124, p945-951, 2000.

This is expanded upon in chapter 16 "Standardization of Routine
Immunohistochemistry: Where to Begin?" p255-272, from the book: Antigen
Retrieval Techniques, Ed. Shan-Rong Shi, Jiang Gu and Clive R. Taylor, 2000,
Eaton Publishing, Natick, MA.
