RE: How to make your own Gram controls

From:"Mottishaw, Brad"

You might try using acute appendix.  If you put several pieces in one block
and have the pathologist check them all at once, then you can re-embed the
pieces that express the bacteria.  

Good luck

Does anyone have the procedure for making your own gram controls.  I have
totally lost mine.  Thanks in advance.
