Nuclear staining is seen in fibroblasts and utilized to distinguish between fibromatosis, low grade fibromyxoid sarcoma, and other myofibroblastic and fibroblastic processes. It can also be useful for classifying subtypes of hepatocellular adenoma and focal nodular hyperplasia.
Formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue blocks (FFPE). If tissue blocks are not available, unstained slides are acceptable (please submit 1–2 slides per antibody to be tested, cuts must be 4 microns thick).
Tissue removed during a surgical procedure and placed in 10% NBF soon after removal from the patient. Appropriate tissue for requested staining.
Complete the Incyte Diagnostics requisition with the patient's demographics and relevant clinical history.
