NordiQC welcomes pathologists, scientists, technicians and others with interest in standardization on applied immunohistochemistry (IHC) to join this second NordiQC conference in Aalborg, Denmark.
Introduced by international experts and NordiQC specialists, the conference is aimed at giving you a comprehensive, up-to-date overview of diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic immunomarkers in major fields of surgical pathology. The lectures will include antibody selection, protocol optimization, use of positive and negative controls, and staining assessment and interpretation.
IHC is an increasingly important ancillary tool in diagnostic pathology but is far from standardized. We must devote our efforts to developing international standards in our daily practice as well as in science for the overall benefit of patients. As the role of IHC analysis is changing from that of an ancillary diagnostic technique to that of a stand-alone diagnostic method, the results of which determine treatment approach, standardization of preanalytical, analytical and postanalytical methods have become even more important, as the results emanating from different laboratories must be directly comparable.
