Immunohistochemistry is a technic used in biology and medicine to visualize the presence, localization and distribution of specific proteins or others biological molecules within tissues samples.

This technic combines principles of light microscopy with immunology, using specific antibodies that bind to proteins of interest in tissues. 

At OCRvet we design personalized IHC protocols for the detection of several markers :

  • Research into markers of interest in pre-clinical research with Animal models (rodents, pigs, sheeps)

  • Research into new markers of interest for veterinary diagnostic

Our catalogue of marker detection protocols is constantly growing, including the development and validation of protocols for new markers. 

For pre-clinical models :

  • Custom anatomopathological analysis (histopathology): standard and specific stains, scoring design ;
  • Custom marker discovery protocol design ; 
  • Report in English. 

Research and development of your marker discovery protocol design on automated system (Discovery XT, Ventana)

  • Antibody search (peer-reviewed literature, sequence homology BLASTs) ;
  • Complete sample processing: sampling, fixation, paraffin embedding, sectioning, staining;
  • Development of IHC protocols for your markers of interest, antibody titration;
  • Validation of labelling with positive/negative control and isotype;
  • Complete analysis of samples with double control (HE slide corresponding to IHC marking);
  • Detailed illustrated report in English by a veterinary anatomopathologist.
