HistoCyte Laboratories’ BRAF V600E Analyte Control consists of two cores negative and positive for expression of BRAF V600E. This provides a cost effective means on controlling for BRAF V600E in immunohistochemistry.  These cell lines are derived from the following tumors:

Cell line A: Breast ductal carcinoma

Cell line B: Malignant melanoma

  1. Cells are fixed in 10% neutral buffered formalin and paraffin wax embedded.
  2. Sections are cut at 4µm, mounted on positively charged slides and dried overnight at 37ºC.
  3. Cell microarrays (CMA) contain cores that are 1.5-2mm in diameter and 3-3.5mm in length.  It is possible to obtain over 300 sections depending on thickness.
