Novodiax ihcDirect® is a novel in vitro diagnostic (IVD) IHC technology for use with frozen tissue sections, in combination with H&E, to support physicians making decisions related to surgical margins in Mohs cases. It works by directly conjugating primary antibodies to a proprietary sensitive polymerized horseradish peroxidase (pHRP) detection system, thus delivering rapid and ready-to-use immunoassays
The simplicity of H&E with the sensitivity and specificity of IHC.
Provide IHC results in 10-20 minutes on frozen sections
Require minimal lab space and no specialized equipment
Can be performed at room temperature up to 30°C
Help distinguish inflammation from cancer when H&Es are inconclusive or difficult to read
Rapid, intraoperative IHC benefits may include:
More informed clinical decision-making
Improved patient experience due to fast turnaround times
Additional reimbursement opportunities
Better patient retention and increased referrals
Q-Stain® X Autostainer
The Future of IHC Processing
The Novodiax Q-STAIN X Autostainer is a simple small autostainer system for rapid immunohistochemistry (IHC) testing with ihcDirect®. This flexible system can perform frozen tissue, H&E, and FFPE tissue testing. This system, along with its accompanying DewaxAR antigen retrieval device help Q-STAIN X fit neatly into nearly any histology or Mohs laboratory setting.
