Anatomic and Molecular Pathology Core Labs

About the laboratory

AMP Core Labs provides contemporary resources for routine histopathology and immunohistochemistry. It also supports other services, including the preparation of paraffin sections for FISH and coring of blocks for next-generation sequencing.

Operations are extensively automated and immunohistochemical testing employs the Ventana Medical Systems, Benchmark ULTRA platform with a large number of well characterized standard-of-care antibodies that are verified using locally fabricated tissue microarrays. Specimens are tracked from accessioning through completion using a bar-code-based tracking system integrated with the Cerner CoPath Plus LIS.
