Product Detail

Product Description plastic tissue. The IHC PR Image Analysis application is intended for use as an aid to the pathologist in the detection and quantitation measurement of PR (Progesterone Receptor) in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded normal and neoplastic tissue. It is indicated for use as an aid in the management, prognosis, and prediction of therapy outcomes of breast cancer. Note: The IHC ER and PR Image Analysis applications are an adjunctive computer-assisted methodology to assist the reproducibility of a qualified pathologist in the acquisition and measurement of images from microscope slides of breast cancer specimens stained for the presence of estrogen and progesterone receptor proteins. The accuracy of the test result depends upon the quality of the immunohistochemical staining. It is the responsibility of a qualified pathologist to employ appropriate morphological studies and controls as specified in the instructions for the ER and PR reagent/kit used to assure the validity of the IHC ER and PR Image Analysis application assisted scores. IHC PR Breast Tissue Manual Read of Digital Slides: The ScanScope® System is an automated digital slide creation, management, viewing and analysis system. It is intended for in vitro diagnostic use as an aid to the pathologist in the display, detection, counting and classification of tissues and cells of clinical interest based on particular color, intensity, size, pattern and shape. The ScanScope® system is intended for use as an aid to the pathologist in the detection and quantitative measurement of PR (Progesterone Receptor) by manual examination of the digital slide of formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded normal and neoplastic tissue immunohistochemically stained for PR on a computer monitor. It is indicated for use as an aid in the management, prognosis, and prediction of therapy outcomes of breast cancer.
