Re: [Histonet] HPV Typing

From:"Richard Cartun"

Yes, HPV typing can be performed on formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded
tissue.  Although monoclonal antibodies to HPV type-specific proteins
exist, I recommend that you do in situ DNA hybridization for definitive
identification and typing.  I have used ProPath (Dallas, TX) and
Genzyme/Impath for this in the past.

Could someone please advise us on HPV typing.

We received a request for HPV typing on tissue sent to us fixed in 10%
and our questions are:
can it be done on formalin fixed tissue, what is the procedure
(stain?), is
it sent out to what entity (a genzyme, a Unilab)?
