The lab analyst applies a single antibody stain on a slide or slides prepared from a single patient specimen, such as tumor tissue. The lab analyst processes the slides using computer assisted technology that counts or estimates the number of stained cells. Then a qualified provider, typically a pathologist, evaluates the stained slides and the results of the computer enumeration, and interprets the results to provide a pathologic diagnosis.
