This week, immunohistochemistry lab technologist, Judy Torne was ‘infected’ by the LMP Q&A BUG. The nomination came from colleague Gordon Chin, whose photo Q&A you can see: HERE
As an Immunohistochemistry technologist, Judy is involved in the process of detecting antigens or proteins in the cells of patient tissue samples. She conducts tests on various specimens by using specific antibodies to stain the samples revealing specific antigens. By detecting what antigens or proteins are present in a cell, our lab can diagnose disease, determine the stage and grade of a tumour, and develop a personalized course of treatment. There are many different applications for immunohistochemistry and it’s a valuable component of LMP’s pathology department, as well as global drug development, and biological research.
