We use the PATIENT sample as our negative control. We use a known positive
for control then put the patient sample on the same slide.We do a negative
for each antibody.  Then the IHC slides (positive and negative) are filed
with the H & E's.

Subject: Negative Controls for Immunohistochemistry

I would like to know what everyone is using for negative controls?

For example are you using a known positive control slide for mouse or rabbit

negative antibody?
or known negative slides against the antibody itself?
and is everyone using the patient control with mouse or rabbit negative 

I guess I'm trying to find out how labs are handleing negative controls?
