An automated immunohistochemistry (IHC) stainer is a sophisticated laboratory instrument used in histopathology and medical diagnostics to automate and standardize the process of applying specific antibodies to tissue sections on microscope slides. These systems are commonly found in clinical laboratories and research facilities. Automated IHC stainers significantly improve the efficiency and consistency of the IHC technique, which is essential for visualizing the presence and distribution of specific proteins or antigens in tissue samples. The automation streamlines the workflow, enhances reproducibility, and minimizes the risk of errors, ensuring accurate and consistent results. These instruments are crucial for the diagnosis of various diseases, especially in oncology, as they help pathologists and researchers identify and understand the expression of specific markers in tissue, aiding in disease characterization and patient care decisions.
