Our talented and experienced scientists have more than 10 years’ experience in tissue-based IHC and IF. They would work closely with you and provide high quality service for you in a short period.

IHC, by exploiting the principle of antibodies binding specifically to antigens in biological tissues, is a routine method to detect antigens in cells of a tissue section. It is widely used in the diagnosis of diseases including cancer, neurological disease, digestive disease, etc. Specific molecular markers have been found and verified to be characteristic of particular cellular events in disease such as proliferation, apoptosis and inflammation. Thus it could be used in detection of such changes involved in disease. IHC is also a common method in basic research of disease to help understanding the distribution and localization of biomarkers and differentially expression of proteins in different parts of tissue. Creative Bioarray offers a comprehensive IHC service from project design, marker selection to image completion and data analysis. We are dedicated to satisfied every customer and assist them to achieve their specific research goals.

Creative Bioarray provides the routine and customized IHC and IF service:

    We offer common biomarkers and staining, which includes, but not limited to:
    • H&E Staining
    • Ki67+ (Cell proliferation)
    • TUNEL (Cell apoptosis)
    • CD15 (Hodgkin’s Disease)
    • CD117 (Gastrointestinal stromal tumors)
    • Cytokeratins (Carcinomas)

  • Staining
    We perform IHC and IF staining on slides with IHC single label or IHC and IF double label. IHC and IF double label staining present two markers on the same tissue slides, contributes to a better understanding of protein localization and interaction.
  • Report and Analysis
    • Pathological evaluation including scoring and analysis
    • High-resolution digital imaging
    • Spot counting and other image analysis
    • Pathology consultation
