I have used a piece of fixed fish liver for many years (not the same one,
that is! :-)) and it makes an easy source of fat control tissue.

I used to cut FS of (+) materials and stored UNFIXED in a -80║C freezer.
They were useful for several years.

  Hello All,

I am interested in hearing what other labs are doing with regard to having

good positive controls slides on hand. Are frozen sections cut from normal

breast tissue and stored? How? Fixed or unfixed? Room temp or freezer?

Thanks in advance!
