Vector Laboratories Announces IHC Video Training Series

March 22, 2018

Vector Laboratories, a leader in the development and manufacture of labeling and detection reagents for biomedical research, announced today the availability of its new five-part video training series on immunohistochemistry (IHC) online this week, Become an IHC Expert (and Avoid Common Pitfalls). This information is freely available.

Topics in “Become an IHC Expert” include how to select reagents depending on experimental priorities, how to use ancillary reagents to improve results, how to optimize the protocol and when to use advanced detection protocols.

“Achieving crisp, sensitive IHC staining can be challenging,” explains Melissa Rebar, Ph.D., director of marketing for Vector Laboratories. “An important part of optimizing an immunohistochemical (IHC) assay is selecting the appropriate reagents. With this training series we help scientists understand the variables to consider when planning an experiment and choosing the reagents that satisfy the criteria. Applying the effort up front saves time, resources and potential frustrations.” The new training series is taught by Erika Leonard, director of quality control at Vector Laboratories.
