RNA in situ Hybridization: The Next Generation of Immunohistochemistry?

This webinar will provide evidence for the use of RNA in situ hybridization (RNA ISH) as a replacement for immunohistochemistry (IHC) in cancer research and diagnostic applications. IHC is the gold standard for many diagnostics, but the approach has some shortcomings, including low diagnostic sensitivity, background staining, unstable antibodies, no available antibodies and a multitude of staining protocols. RNA ISH has the ability to overcome these problems with IHC and has the potential to address issues with other technologies, including molecular “grind and bind” methods such as PCR, next-generation sequencing and gene expression profiling. The RNAscope RNA ISH method from Advanced Cell Diagnostics uses a brightfield in situ hybridization-based assay to visualize cellular RNA in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue sections. The highly sensitive assay shows promise for detecting biomarkers that are missed by other methods.
