Available Functions

  January Lab Webinar- Framework for Reporting Materials and Methods for Histology Assays: Guidance from the Journal of Histotechnology
Lack of rigor and reproducibility is a major issue in the biomedical research community. A number of studies have demonstrated that published literature lacks sufficient rigor to reproduce key experiments and findings. Nowhere is this more widespread than in the area of histotechnology. This presentation provides a guide to address the lack of detailed reporting of materials and methods in research histology. Our goal is to establish a structured framework that highlights the key factors necessary to document, communicate and reproduce slide-based histotechnology assays. - Presented by Luis Chiriboga, PhD
  February Lab Webinar - Remembering Why - Patient Case Studies
Not having the traditional patient interaction can cause the histologist to dissociate the specimen from the patient. By sharing patient cases and reminding laboratory staff how important their role is in the process of making a diagnosis, the significance of having a high quality product will be not only be because a guideline says so, but because a patient behind that sample is counting on it.
  March Lab Webinar -Ai in the Lab
This webinar will help participants to understand the complexity and challenges associated with conversion of glass slides into digital images; to understand the role of image analysis and artificial intelligence in digital pathology; to understand the crucial role of histotechnologists in the current state of anatomical pathology workflow.
  April Lab Webinar - Overview of Common Neoplasms of the Central Nervous System
The 2021 fifth edition WHO classification of Tumors of the Central nervous system emphasizes the role of integrated diagnosis in primary CNS neoplasms, which incorporates morphological characteristics, immunohistochemical findings, genetic alterations and methylation profiles. This presentation will discuss the general approach to glial, neuronal and mesenchymal neoplasms, the impact of new molecular criteria on tumor grading and prognosis, the challenges encountered in our practice and common diagnostic pitfalls.
  May Webinar - Immunocytochemistry techniques and advances in dermatopathology
In this webinar we concentrate on the application of immunocytochemistry (IHC) techniques within the field of dermatopathology, involving heat mediated antigen retrieval steps, antigen detection systems, signal amplification procedures, and double labelling as well as esoteric IHC techniques involving ‘bleaching’ procedures for the evaluation of melanocytic lesions followed by IHC staining. Consideration will be given to the range and scope of automated IHC staining platforms available. Finally it will be explained how these developments have found a niche within the field of dermatopathology at both the light and electron microscope levels. Emphasis will be given to how best to optimise the amount of useful information that can be obtained from any given sample and will be a focus and goal of this webinar.
  June Lab Webinar - Case Study: Malakoplakia of the Bladder
Malakoplakia is a rare chronic inflammatory disease thought to be the result of defective bacterial phagocytosis and lysosome function, and there is difficulty in accurate diagnosis as a result of non-specific symptoms that mimic other diseases and cancers. This study presents a case of bladder malakoplakia associated with renal failure presenting as a tumor.
  July Lab Webinar - Validating Your Tissue Processor- Instrument Validation
Tissue processing is the foundation for producing reliable results in the Histology laboratory. As new working environments and staffing challenges emerge, it’s vital to understand how validating your tissue processing, and associated reagents can affect your laboratories tissue quality. This presentation will allow you to review the steps in tissue processing, discuss best practices in validating your tissue processor and learn how a standardized validation process can improve the quality of your processed tissue.
  August Lab Webinar - IHC Troubleshooting Based on Microscopic Findings
The information you need to fix any IHC staining problems is available under the microscope. You just need to understand what your stains are telling you. This webinar will discuss the microscopic evaluation of IHC stains. A systematic approach for stain evaluation will be presented.
  September Lab Webinar - Histology in Vet Medicine
Histology plays a pivotal role in Veterinary Medicine and histotechnologists are indispensable. For example, veterinary pathologists at the University of Missouri’s Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Laboratory read more than 10,000 biopsy cases and more than 1,000 autopsy cases annually, and all tissue samples are proficiently prepared by histotechnologists. Many scientists in the College of Veterinary Medicine and across the campus use histological analysis to accelerate scientific discoveries. Histology is also an integral part of education in Vet School and is utilized in various areas including study of diseased tissues for students and residents. In this webinar, I will introduce three areas: diagnosis, research, and education, where histology play an important role in Vet Medicine.
  October Lab Webinar - Tissue Contaminants
Histologists and surgical pathologists are familiar with the phenomenon of the tissue contaminant (TC) or floater. Although TCs are unusual events, and the majority of contaminants are fragments of benign tissue they often receive limited attention until an error occurs. This webinar will review TCs and their potential impacts.
  November Lab Webinar - IHC Validations
PLEASE NOTE THE DATE CHANGE ON THIS SESSION. This webinar will review the principles of immunohistochemistry protocol optimization and approaches to validate an optimized protocol. The advantage of standard pre-analytical processing will be discussed as well as the need for post-analytical interpretation of staining results for quality assurance.
  December Lab Webinar - The Importance of Paraffin
This webinar will be an exploration of paraffin and what makes it so unique to the world of Histotechnology

Continuing Education

How Does It Work?

What do I need to participate?
You will need a computer with speakers and an internet connection to view the presentation. All sessions will take place at 1:00pm EST.

Do Sessions Qualify for Continuing Education?
Registrants who attend the live or on-demand sessions will receive CEU Credit (accepted by ASCP, Florida's CE Brokers & PACE). Site coordinators will receive an email including a PDF with a link to the archived recording and the handout. Please save all of these resources for future reference. Each webinar that you have registered for will have its own unique link and is available for 1 year from the air date that still qualifies for CE Credits.as well. If you register your lab the registered site coordinator will need to return a roster of attendees within 48 hours. The roster template will be mailed to lab site coordinators the week before the start of the series.

What if we missed the live event & want to order it?
If you purchase a webinar but miss the live event you will receive an archived version for viewing. You and your lab can watch on-demand for 1-year and STILL EARN CEUs!!
