Re: ? about control blocks/ slides


It is not a bad idea to seal your paraffin blocks, however this is not a
rule of thumb. The control slide themselves can be placed in a slide box
after drying. I usually stain the first and last slide to make sure I have
something positve there. Staining the first slide and last slide is also
good for inspection,whether it is CAP or GLP.

Subject:  ? about control blocks/ slides

Dear Histo friends:
Is there a proper way I should store my control blocks and any control
that I cut ahead of time? Also should I dip the block into the paraffin to
reseal the blocks?
Thank you ahead of time for your answer's.
