Creating the standard in IHC testing

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

 

Our goal is to help take IHC labs to the next level by dramatically reducing the IHC error rate so that it is on par with other types of clinical diagnostic labs, which have already commercial standardized test controls.

Our Mission

Our Mission

By offering IHC controls and calibrators that bring down the error rate and provide consistent accuracy in immunohistochemistry labs, we are giving you the tools you need to prevent false-negative test results. Greater accuracy means more effective diagnosing. We specialize in bringing medical diagnostic research concepts to reality by conducting our own research and then developing the manufacturing methods for transition to commercial production.
