The reader is referred to specialized textbooks of immunohistology for details of antigen retrieval, staining procedures, detection systems, and relevant references. It should be noted that antigen retrieval has a pivotal role whatever the detection system employed.

Except in well-fixed tissue, as background reactive lymphocytes generally stain even more strongly. Reactive lymphocytes express κ and λ light chains in a ratio of approximately 2:1. With respect to class or isotype, in general, IgM is the most readily detected as it is a larger molecule with relatively low concentration in the plasma; hence, diffusion artifacts are less frequent compared to other immunoglobulins. Surface IgD can also be demonstrated in small lymphocytic lymphomas and mantle cell lymphomas.
