New KSVDL Tests

Immunohistochemistry Offerings
  • IBA-1 is known as a “panmacrophage marker” that works in most species and will aid in the diagnosis of diseases of histiocytic origin, such as histiocytic sarcoma in dogs.
  • Sarcomeric actin is used to stain striated muscle and will aid in the diagnosis of undifferentiated sarcomas and rhadomyosarcomas in dogs.
  • Cytokeratin 19 is currently being used to evaluate its expression in certain tumors of epithelial origin, which may lead to its usefulness as a diagnostic or prognostic marker in certain tumors.

For more information concerning these new IHC tests, please contact Dr. Jamie Henningson at 785-532-4129 or heningsn@vet.k-state.edu.
