This antibody is specific to a 15kDa monomer protein called Gross Cystic Disease Fluid Protein-15 (GCDFP-15). GCDFP15 is expressed in apocrine epithelia, lacrimal, ceruminous and Moll’s glands, as well as in numerous serous cells of the submandibular, tracheal, bronchial, sublingual and minor salivary glands. It can be of use in the identification of breast carcinoma, salivary duct carcinoma and apocrine epithelia.
- A formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue block is preferred specimen type
- One (1) unbaked, unstained slide for H&E staining (required) and two to three (2-3) positively charged unstained slides (all cut at 4-5 microns) for each test/antibody ordered
- Block and slide identifiers should be clearly written and match exactly with the specimen ID and specimen labeling as noted on the requisition.
Use cold pack for transport. Make sure cold pack is not in direct contact with specimen.
