DETECTION OF INFECTIOUS-DISEASE AGENTS IN TISSUE BY IMMUNOCYTOCHEMISTRY
MetadataShow full item record
1. Immunocytochemical procedures have played an increasingly larger role in the identification of infectious disease agents in tissue sections owing to the increased availability and specificity of antibody reagents, the great sensitivity of the methods, and the relative facility with which the studies are performed.2. Immunocytochemical methods can be applied to routine formalin-fixed tissue for the detection of infectious agents such as viruses, bacteria, fungi, and protozoa among other microorganisms for diagnostic and research purposes.
