Our pathologists voiced similar concerns until a HT/HTL QIHC tech came to our 
lab to give up in house seminar on IHC.   In his opinion (I am not saying 
this is absolute fact), it didnt appear to affect staining on MOST stains.  
We precut controls. I can't say how long they would be good for, but ours 
sometimes are a month old and still demonstrate very positive staining.
