Tonsils for control material (Mainly for UK subscribers)

From:"Auld, John" <>

Dear All

In my hospital tonsillectomies have been advised against due the potential
risk of transmitting vCJD. Not surpirisingly this is causing us problems
with control slides for immuno. Are other hospitals in the same situation?
if so how are you coping.  This was touched on in the IBMS site a short time
ago, but I have been having problems accessing the site recently.  Any info
gratefully received.

Many thanks in advance
