PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

The enclosed positive control slides are intended to verify histological techniques and reagent reactivity. The intended use is for the qualitative purpose of determining positive or negative results, and not intended for any quantitative purpose. Helicobacter pylori purchased from American Type Culture Collection is used to produce the positive rat lung control tissue and the negative control sections are produced from human surgical or autopsy tissues under carefully controlled conditions. Quality control measures are used to deliver control slides that are as consistent as possible.  

 

APPLICATION:

Newcomer Supply Helicobacter sp., Artificial Control Slides are for the positive immunohistochemical staining of Helicobacter sp., spiral shaped bacterium strongly associated with inflammation of the stomach and implicated in the development of gastric malignancy, peptic ulcers, and chronic gastritis.

 

NEWCOMER SUPPLY VALIDATION PROCEDURE:

  1. Heat dry sections in oven according to your laboratory protocol.
  2. Deparaffinize sections thoroughly in three changes of xylene, 3 minutes each.  Hydrate through two changes each of 100% and 95% ethyl alcohols, 10 dips each.  Wash well with distilled water.
    1. See Procedure Note #1.
  3. Proceed, if necessary, with an epitope/antigen retrieval technique approved for use in your laboratory.
  4. Rinse in distilled water; tap off excess water.
  5. Circle sections with Pap Pen Liquid Blocker (Part 6505, 6506 or 6507) to reduce reagent usage and ensure tissue coverage.
  6. Block endogenous peroxidase with freshly made 3% Hydrogen Peroxide. Incubate for 5 minutes.
    1. See Procedure Note #2.
  7. Wash slides gently in distilled water. Rinse in two changes of Tris Buffered Saline.
    1. See Procedure Note #3.
  8. Tap off excess buffer; apply Helicobacter Pylori primary antibody.  Incubate at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  9. Rinse slides in two changes of buffer.
  10. Tap off excess buffer; apply Amplifier.  Incubate for 10 minutes.
  11. Rinse slides in two changes of buffer.
  12. Tap off excess buffer; apply HRP Polymer. Incubate for 10 minutes.
  13. Rinse slides in two changes of buffer.
  14. Prepare required quantity of DAB substrate/chromogen.
  15. Tap off excess buffer; apply DAB. Incubate for 5 minutes.
  16. Rinse slides in four changes of distilled water. 
  17. Counterstain lightly with Hematoxylin Stain, Gill I (Part 1180) for 5 minutes.
  18. Rinse slides in warm tap water to blue sections.
  19. Dehydrate in two changes each of 95% and 100% ethyl alcohol. Clear in three changes of xylene, 10 dips each; coverslip with compatible mounting medium. 

 

RESULTS:

Helicobacter sp. positive expression Golden to dark brown bacteria
Lung Negative
  Background staining possible
Nuclei Blue

 

PROCEDURE NOTES:

  1. Do not allow sections to dry out at any point during procedure.
  2. Dilute sufficient Hydrogen Peroxide 30%, Aqueous (Part 1206) with distilled water to a 3% (1/10) solution prior to use.
  3. Dilute sufficient Tris Buffered Saline 0.05M, pH 7.6, 10X (Part 140304) with distilled water to a 1/10 solution prior to use for all buffer rinses in this procedure.
  4. Cell Marque Helicobacter Pylori (polyclonal 215A) is the concentrated primary antibody used.  Dilute primary antibody to 1/750 working dilution with Cell Marque Emerald: Antibody Diluent (936B).
  5. Cell Marque HiDef Detection™ HRP Polymer System (954D) provides the Amplifier and HRP Polymer solutions used.
  6. Cell Marque DAB Substrate Kit (957D) is the chromogen used.
  7. If using a xylene substitute, closely follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for deparaffinization and clearing steps.
