Anti-cytokeratin cocktail (AE1/AE3 & PCK26) is well suited to distinguish epithelial carcinoma from non-epithelial malignancies and is used to aid epithelial tumor classification. This antibody has been used to characterize the source of various neoplasms and to study the distribution of keratin containing cells in epithelia during normal development and during the development of epithelial neoplasms. This antibody stains cytokeratins present in normal and abnormal human tissues and has shown high sensitivity in recognizing epithelial cells and carcinomas.

Tumor paraffin block (formalin-fixed only) or five 4-micron unstained
sections on Poly-L-Lysine or Silane coated slides. See Specimen
Collection Section, Oncology. Ship at room temperature. Do not place
labels with adhesive backing on slides. Use pencil or xylene resistant
pen to write on the frosted end of the slide only. Pathology report
