Histological analysis of tumor specimens is a staple in the diagnostic toolbox of pathologists, laboratory medicine professionals, and translational researchers. As scientists learn more about cancer and the molecular markers that predict patient responses to therapy, there is an increased need to profile patient samples at greater depth. To meet this need, researchers have expanded traditional histological methods, such as immunohistochemistry (IHC), to analyze markers, including proteins and transcripts, in single tissue sections.
