Quantitative IHControls® - Game-Changing Technology

Quantitative IHControls® - Game-Changing Technology

IHControls®  are on-slide immunohistochemistry (IHC) staining controls that use proprietary tagged protein/peptide targets, which allow precise measurement of concentration traced to an NIST standard.  This development, in turn, assures consistency day-to-day, lot-to-lot, and lab-to-lab.

Advancing the Field

High error rates in the immunohistochemistry industry have simply been accepted as a problem that cannot be solved due to the nature of IHC testing and the lack of reliable methods. But not anymore – thanks to IHControls.

Our Mission:
Creating the Highest Clinical IHC Standard

At Boston Cell Standards, we focus on developing highly innovative medical diagnostics technologies in order to do one thing – improve patient outcomes.

A Superior Choice

  • Placing homemade tissue controls adjacent to the patient sample as an on-slide control creates the risk of confusing the two. This risk is eliminated with IHControls.
  • IHControls are comprised of cell-sized glass microbeads coated with protein targets. These beads are clearly distinguishable from patient samples.
