AW: [Histonet] negatives

From:"Gudrun Lang"

I am curious what material is used for making a negative HE-control? Glass?
In my opinion positive and negative controls make only sense with stains
that give a yes/no-result, like ZN. With the other stains I think it is
rather obvious, if they have worked or not.

Betreff: [Histonet] negatives

Histo netters:

I got a call from a fellow tech asking me if I run a negative control on my
special stains and my H&E slides.  I was completely stumped because I have
always used my internal negative and an a positive for each stain.  My
explanation is that the positive is for the test and the negative is for the
patient.  I have only run negative for higher testing such as IHC, ISH, etc.
Can someone help me to help my fellow tech with the explanation.
