Our Aim

It is recognised that the identification of suitable archive tissue for use as controls in slide based assays can be difficult due to heterogeneous expression of biomarkers, fixation artefacts, rarity of their expression, or just general lack of availability.

The novel technology developed by HistoCyte Laboratories Ltd employs cell lines to avoid these issues and allows us to process the cell lines into tissue-like controls.
