   First let me explain, we are the result of many hospital/lab merges, so, we
have a long history and a very short memory, (long term exposure).  We were
discussing the fact that some of us dry our control slides, after we cut them
and then box them up for later use and some of us cut the control slide, let
them air dry and then box them up for later use.  This is for IHC and special
stains.  We all put our patient on,  the same slide with the control  and dry
them before we rehydrate.  Does it matter either way?

Thanks for any input.
