An immunohistochemical kit for the detection of Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) from liver biopsies
Hepa-Ab is a kit for the in vitro diagnosis of HCC from liver biopsies. The kit contains a lyophilized rabbit oligoclonal antibody generated against SCCA variants for immunohistochemical staining of liver biopsies, obtained surgically or through fine needle aspiration, providing a semi-quantitative determination of SCCA proteins expression in neoplastic liver tissue samples. Compared to conventional methods, Hepa-Ab displays the highest sensitivity and specificity to permit or confirm HCC diagnosis, complementing other well used diagnostic approaches.
Thus this tool is used to permit or confirm HCC diagnosis, thus providing much needed diagnostic support when viewing suspect liver biopsies.
