We are proud to announce that we have expanded the in-house test menu of our Anatomic Pathology Laboratory with 12 new immunohistochemistry stains. With these new additions, NRL’s in-house staining menu now consists of more than 140 stains, including one of the largest immunohistochemistry panels available across the anatomic pathology laboratories in the region.
