This antibody is intended for in vitro diagnostic (IVD) use.
Ventana Medical Systems' (Ventana) anti-Actin, Muscle (HUC 1-1) may be used to aid in the identification of cells of normal and abnormal myocytic lineage as an aid in diagnosis of anaplastic tumors. Anti-Actin, Muscle (HUC 1-1) specifically binds to antigens located in the cytoplasm of myocytic cells. This antibody is intended for laboratory use to qualitatively identify by light microscopy muscle actin in sections of formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue on a Ventana automated slide stainer.
The clinical interpretation of any staining, or the absence of staining, must be complemented by morphological studies and evaluation of proper controls. Evaluation must be made by a qualified pathologist within the context of the patient’s clinical history and other diagnostic tests.
