Reagents, Immunocytochemistry, Tumor Marker, Receptor Assay
Definition : Immunocytochemistry reagents intended to perform qualitative and/or quantitative analyses on tissue preparations to determine molecular structures (i.e., receptors) within or on the surface of the cells (typically some specific proteins) that permit selective binding with high affinity and great specificity to particular substances (e.g., hormones such as estrogen and progesterone). These reagents are mostly used in monoclonal antibody based assays that act on direct antigenic recognition.
