VENTANA anti-HER2/neu (4B5) Rabbit Monoclonal Primary Antibody (CE IVD)

Roche VENTANA HER2 4B5 breast cancer IHC stain
Leading the way in HER2 testing

The use of pre-diluted VENTANA anti-HER2/neu (4B5) Rabbit Monoclonal Primary Antibody(VENTANA HER2 (4B5) Antibody), in combination with the fully automated BenchMark IHC/ISH slide staining instrument, standardizes all IHC processes from baking through staining, and reduces the possibility of human error. It also minimizes inherent variability resulting from individual reagent dilution and other processes found in manual and semi-automated IHC methods.

The Roche HER2 (4B5) clone* empowers you to:

  • Achieve consistently high proficiency assessment scores compared to other clones2
  • Employ the most widely adopted and reliable HER2-IHC primary antibody2
  • Demonstrate high concordance with HER2 FISH3,4

Intended use

VENTANA anti-HER2/neu (4B5) Rabbit Monoclonal Primary Antibody is intended for the semi-quantitative detection of HER2 antigen in sections of formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded normal and neoplastic breast and gastric tissue on a BenchMark IHC/ISH instrument.

This product is indicated as an aid in the assessment of breast and gastric cancer patients for whom Herceptin® (trastuzumab) treatment is considered and for breast cancer patients for whom KADCYLA® (ado-trastuzumab emtansine) or PERJETA® (pertuzumab) treatments are being considered.

This product should be interpreted by a qualified pathologist in conjunction with histological examination, relevant clinical information, and proper controls.

This antibody is intended for in vitro diagnostic (IVD) use.
