)-- Pathology Diagnostics has embraced the invaluably powerful technique of immunofluorescence (IMF); utilising fluorescent-labelled antibodies to detect specific target antigens. Used widely in both scientific research and clinical laboratories, the launch of IMF capabilities enables Pathology Diagnostics to continue increasing the high-level of services offered to its customer base.
The scope of immunofluorescence (IMF) capabilities in Pathology Diagnostics Ltd is perpetually growing and evolving, with the result that the technical team are able to perform single, double and an impressive triple IMF. With the addition of newly acquired fluorescence microscopy capabilities, Pathology Diagnostics is now able to perform triple IMF quantitative imaging with FITC, Texas Red, and DAPI channels. Double and/or triple staining reduces the amount of tissue required to get maximum information, which is of critical importance when dealing with miniscule and precious biopsy samples from early discovery and clinical trials studies.
