Vimentin Antibody Validated

Human renal cell carcinoma - Vimentin antibody

We have been working hard to validate many new antibodies for research use.  Vimentin is now available for use on Human, mouse and rat FFPE tissues.

According to the data sheet Vimentin, is a general marker of cells originating in the mesenchyme. Vimentin is frequently co-expressed with other members of the intermediate filament family, such as the cytokeratins, in neoplasms including melanoma and breast carcinoma.

Help With Fungus Type

Human spleen stained with GMS for fungus

We have this tissue (human Spleen).  It was bought for fungus and we did the GMS stain for it but not sure of it’s type.  To me (untrained eye), it looks like blastomycosis.  It stained positive with GMS, has budding and otherwise looks like round circles.  I’m sorry, I don’t have H&E pictures yet, they are coming later.

Since I am not a pathologist, just interested in all tissues, with all stains, I’m asking you to help me identify this fungus type.

What do you think this fungus type is?

Thank  you
