HistoCyte Laboratories’ multi-purpose Breast Analyte Control is a qualitative control that contains two cell lines that demonstrate positive and negative expression of ER, PR and HER2.  Ideal for use as a same slide control in immunohistochemistry (IHC) to demonstrate the reagents have been correctly applied to the slide.  These cell lines are derived from the following tumors:

Cell line A: Osteosarcoma

Cell line B: Breast ductal carcinoma
