The company adds two new antibodies to the Dako portfolio of reagents, instruments and software.
The two antibodies are Anti-CK 8/18 and Anti-TdT. Anti-CK 8/18 is the first rabbit monoclonal antibody cocktail for cytokeratin 8/18 (CK 8/18) available from a major pathology provider. It is used by pathologists to stain CK 8/18 in tissue samples and thereby help classify tumors of unknown origin.
The FLEX Ready-to-Use is a plug-and-play solution consisting of pre-diluted antibodies, a visualization system, and optimized validated protocols developed in collaboration with pathology experts. The protocols are developed to take into account pre-analytical variations and different ways of processing and handling tissue samples, ensuring optimal staining results for pathology labs.
“With the FLEX RTU solution, it takes less time for a lab to validate new antibodies for routine diagnostic use,”said Hans Christian Pedersen, global product manager, Dako IHC reagents. “FLEX Ready-to-Use antibodies are helping labs get high-quality results from day one.”
