H&E Solution, day 1
The H&E slides (No.1 & 11) illustrate the staining quality and consistency of Dako CoverStainer. This slide is the first stained with fresh Dako H&E reagents.
Warthin-Starry Stain Kit, Artisan™
One of Dako’s and the market’s fastest protocols (7 minutes, 38 seconds) provides a crisp stain that allows the pathologist to identify Helicobacter pylori, and other microorganisms easily.
Grocott’s Methenamine Silver (GMS) Stain Kit, Artisan™
The most widely used application of this silver method is to identify pathogenic fungi, including Pneumocystis jirovecii, in human tissues.
AMACR, Clone 13H4*
Best in Test**: Two clones provide the best scores, but only the Dako clone 13H4 is applicable for in vitro diagnostics. 100% of the customer-submitted stains using the Dako FLEX RTU antibody clone 13H4 achieved the sufficient score.
BCL-2, clone 124*
Best in Test**: In the quality assurance program all stains using Dako FLEX RTU clone 124 antibody achieved the sufficient score.
CD10, clone 56C6*
Best in Test**: 100% of the customer-submitted stains using the Dako FLEX RTU clone 56C6 antibody achieved the sufficient score.
CDX 2, clone DAK-CDX-2*
Best in Test**: 100% of the customer-submitted stains using the Dako FLEX RTU clone DAK-CDX2 antibody achieved the sufficient scores.
Cytokeratin 20, clone Ks20.8*
Best in Test**: 100% of the customer-submitted stains using the Dako FLEX RTU clone Ks20.8 antibody achieved the sufficient scores.
HercepTest™ – Breast Cancer
Dako pioneered companion diagnostics as the first FDAapproved assay developed to aid in identifying breast cancer patients most likely to benefit from treatment with trastuzumab. A complete assay with demonstrated sensitivity and specificity is probably the reason for it being the most used HER2 testing kit.
HercepTest™ – Gastric Cancer
Exclusively used in the ToGA*** trial for evaluating the benefit of trastuzumab treatment in HER2-positive gastric cancer patients. This is your guarantee for proven correlation between the test and clinical evidence.
H&E Solution, day 5
This slide is the 3000th slide stained with the very same reagents. It demonstrates quality and consistency for up to 3000 slides (or 5 days usage) with the same H&E reagents.
Periodic Acid-Schiff (PAS) Stain Kit, Artisan™
Dako’s PAS kit demonstrates the glycogen deposits in the liver and kidney. Duplicate sections (with and without alphaamylase) can be stained simultaneously on the automated platform, to allow a better laboratory throughput.
Jones’ Basement Membrane (PAS-M) Stain Kit, Artisan™
Dako has optimized this kit for use on 2 ìm thick tissue sections, allowing enhanced visualization of basement membranes, specifically glomerular and tubular basement membranes in renal tissue.
B-Cell Specific Activator Protein (BSAP or Pax5), clone DAK-Pax5
Best in Test **: With the Dako clone DAK-Pax5 antibody 100% of the stains submitted by customers to the quality assurance program achieved the highest rating (optimal).
Carcinoembryonic Antigen (CEA), clone II-7*
Best in Test**: 100% of the customer-submitted stains using the Dako FLEX RTU clone II-7 antibody achieved the sufficient score.
CD15, clone Carb-3*
Best in Test**: Is one of the three strongest clones on the market. 100% of the customer-submitted stains using the Dako FLEX RTU clone Carb-3 antibody achieved the sufficient score.
Melan A, clone A103*
Best in Test**: 100% of the customer-submitted stains using the Dako FLEX RTU clone A103 antibody achieved the sufficient score.
Actin (Smooth Muscle), clone 1A4*
Best in Test**: 92% of the customer-submitted stains using Dako FLEX RTU clone 1A4 antibody achieved the sufficient score.
ER/PR pharmDx™ Kit
The only FDA-cleared kit on the market contains clones (1D5 and ER-2-123 to ER and PgR 1294 to PgR) that are recommended by ASCO/CAP. It is a complete kit with RTU antibodies, reagents, negative control reagent, and cell line control slides, reducing the need for validation. (Image shows estrogen receptor)
HER2 CISH pharmDx™ Kit - Breast Cancer
Chromogenic visualization of the HER2 gene gives you interpretation by bright field microscopy, preservation of morphology, storage at room temperature – and an excellent concordance to PathVysion HER-2 DNA Probe Kit (FISH) of 97,7%, all unique features of HER2 CISH pharmDx™ Kit.
* The FLEX RTU antibody slides have been set up with Dako’s optimal IHC solution: PT Link, Autostainer Link and EnVision™ FLEX/FLEX+ visualization.
** Best in Test by customer submissions to NordiQC between 2003 – 2010, http://www.nordiqc.org/assessments.htm. Sufficient score covers the ratings Optimal Staining and Good Staining.
