Immunohistochemistry is used to demonstrate specific antigens within formalin-fixed tissue specimens. Diagnostic Services offers in-house immunohistochemistry for a number of cellular antigens (validated in both the cat and the dog). Immunohistochemistry for other antigens, including infectious agents, can be performed on submitted tissue and referred to several external veterinary laboratories. Results are generally available within 3 – 4 days for tests performed in-house and within 1 – 2 weeks for those performed at external laboratories.
