HistoCyte Laboratories’ multipurpose Breast Analyte ControlDR contains five cell lines that demonstrate a Dynamic Range of 0, 1+ and 3+ for HER2.  For ER and PR a variety of staining provides a degree of sensitivity over a standard control.  Ideal for use in a laboratory where one control can be used across multiple assays as a same slide control in immunohistochemistry (IHC).  These cell lines are derived from the following tumors:

Cell line A: Osteosarcoma

Cell line B: Breast ductal carcinoma

Cell line C: Breast ductal carcinoma

Cell line D: Breast ductal carcinoma

Cell line E: Breast ductal carcinoma

  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.
