Create mode – the default mode when you create a requisition and PunchOut to Bio-Rad. You can create and edit multiple shopping carts
Edit mode – allows you to edit or modify an existing requisition (prior to submitting). You will be able to modify only the cart that you have PunchedOut to, and won't have access to any other carts
Inspect mode – when you PunchOut to Bio-Rad from a previously created requisition but without initiating an Edit session, you will be in this mode. You cannot modify any Cart contents

Immunohistochemistry (IHC) experiments are used to visualize antigens/proteins in a tissue with the help of enzymatically or fluorescently labeled antibodies. The technique is commonly applied in the clinic and in academic research to distinguish healthy from morphologically abnormal tissue. Depending on how the tissue has been prepared, the IHC technique is referred to as IHC-paraffin, IHC-frozen or IHC-free floating.
As with other antibody based applications, in recent years, a trend towards multiplexing (simultaneous visualization of several protein antigens) has been observed.
When designing multiplexing experiments special care has to be taken at the fluorophore and chromogen-enzyme combination selection stage, as it is important that the stained cellular compartments can be clearly spectrally differentiated; for example, two chromogen-enzyme pairs yielding a brown staining should be avoided.
When using fluorescently labeled antibodies, fluorophore with a high spectral overlap should be avoided. It is therefore recommended to check for spectral overlap with the help of a fluorescence spectrum viewer when deciding which fluorophore to use.
