Ultrastructural immunolabeling techniques combine the advantages of routine electron microscopy and detection of antigenic epitopes, the latter of which is customarily done by immunocytochemistry at the light microscopic level. In surgical pathology, immunocytochemistry has become routine to approach the differential diagnosis of difficult cases. Immunoelectron microscopy has been used primarily for research purposes or for addressing specific questions in diagnostic pathology. Ultrastructural… CONTINUE READING
