HHV-6 Immunohistochemistry (IHC)


IHC - HHV-6 in Liver Duct


Reactivation of HHV-6 after transplant is a common risk. The HHV-6 immunohistochemical staining (IHC) testing method on formalin-fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE) tissue is used to detect the presence of active HHV-6 infection in tissue.

Coppe Laboratories is the only reference laboratory in the U.S. providing HHV-6 IHC testing. We are a trusted provider of transplant centers and children’s hospitals throughout the nation. While posted turnaround time is 7 business days, STAT services can be arranged, as Coppe Laboratories recognizes the urgency in some cases. All HHV-6 IHC cases are reviewed by our board-certified pathologist to assess the pathological evidence of viral infection.
