Yeesh! "Bug controls"?

From:Alex Knisely

Sharon, why not buy a quarter-pound of hamburger, let it sit on the counter
overnight at RT, and then cassette it?  You should have buggies galore,
through and through the mix.

injecting the "bugs" into fresh tissue? Our pathologist have limited the
use of diagnostic tissue blocks for control blocks.  We need to make some
in-house blocks.  The microbiology department will supply the  "bugs" but
we need to get them in the tissue and incubate the tilssue so we get a good
control.  Any ideas?
