Test ID: KINM    
Ki-67(MIB-1), Gastrointestinal/Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors, Quantitative Immunohistochemistry, Manual

Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference

A 4-micron thick section is cut from the paraffin block. The section is stained with an immunoperoxidase method using the monoclonal antibody Ki-67 (MIB-1 clone). This is the paraffin nuclear epitope to the Ki-67 antigen. Any nucleus that has an antigen-antibody complex will cause the bright-field, brown chromogen, diaminobenzidine (DAB), to precipitate onto it. All nuclei, both DAB-positive and -negative, are counterstained with diluted hematoxylin.(Unpublished Mayo method)
