An auto-stainer (AS), whole-slide imaging system (WSI), and computer software were used as quality assurance tools for breast cancer immunohistochemistry (IHC).

Cell lines, such as MCF-7 for estrogen receptors and progesterone receptors, and SKBR- 3 for Topo2a, were co-stained with samples as IHC control.

Combinatory usage of AS, WSI, computer software and cell lines can reduce deviation in each IHC step and is beneficial for IHC quality assurance.
