Department of Pathology Diagnostic Services


The immunohistochemistry laboratory performs immunoperoxidase stains and in-situ hybridization for ~250 markers covering various purposes including aiding the detection of infectious agents, identification and classification of neoplasms, determining the state of cell signaling and classifying neurodegenerative disorders. It also supports a large number of local research projects with focus on cancer biology and neuropathology. The laboratory uses fully automated staining techniques based on the Ventana Ultra and Biocare plateforms, which enable us to generate approximately 75,000 stains annually for a diverse number of services. The laboratory is CAP certified and successfully participates in all available CAP proficiency testing.

Dr. Szabolcs is a Professor of Clinical Pathology and is the director of the immunohistochemistry laboratory.
