RE: [Histonet] Re: Negative Control Tissue

From:"Weems, Joyce"

This has always been confusing, but, if I understand correctly, the
negative control is the same patient tissue without primary antibody.
Use a negative for each detection system used if you have multiple
antibodies on the same block.

I think you would have to use the same tissue you use for your + control
to show that it "is working/staining" and "is not working/staining"
At least that is how we do it.

I have a questions about negative control tissue, does anyone know what
the most universal tissue would be that we could use to act as our
negative control tissue.    We are looking for the tissue that could be
used with the widest array of antibodies.
