AMP Core Labs provides contemporary resources for routine histopathology and immunohistochemistry. It also supports other services, including the preparation of paraffin sections for FISH and coring of blocks for next-generation sequencing.

Operations are extensively automated and immunohistochemical testing employs the Ventana Medical Systems, Benchmark ULTRA platform with a large number of well characterized standard-of-care antibodies that are verified using locally fabricated tissue microarrays. Specimens are tracked from accessioning through completion using a bar-code-based tracking system integrated with the Cerner CoPath Plus LIS.
