Abstract

Immunohistochemical (IHC) staining of tissue sections has been an invaluable tool when diagnosing patient tissue in the anatomic pathology laboratory. Automation and standardization of IHC have led to increased breakthroughs in diagnosis of tumors as well as tissue classification which assist in determining the most effective treatments. The Roche Ventana BenchMark ULTRA IHC/ISH staining system is one of these automated platforms found in many laboratories. Operation of the ULTRA requires in-depth training, but produces well-stained tissue sections while offering some flexibility in usage. This technical note describes general use of the ULTRA and basic troubleshooting techniques when operating this instrument.
