RE: [Histonet] control tissues

From:"Stapf, Ross"

At my former lab we tried it with Helicobacter with no success.  We did
have success with another attempt.  I think it was with AFB, but it may
have been GMS.  My memory is a little hazy this morning as I haven't had
my coffee yet.

Hi Theresa,

Thanks for your reply but I am well familiar with the 'in-house' sytem
of control tissues. I am more interested in inocultaing tissues, such as
fresh placenta, with 'substances' to create a new control block. Just
wondering if anyone has tried it!

Evelyn:  We make many of our own controls, using other cases that are
positive for the pathology tested for.  Our pathologists keep us
informed on + Helicobacter Pylori, and for other things, we use tissue
raided from surgicals (such as appendix for Trichrome, non-neoplastic
spleen for reticulum, liver for PAS).  Good liver for Fe controls is
hard to find, some Histonetters in England sent me a batch.  I think you
could "raid" surgicals, and find nearly any tissue you need for
controls.  Our computer system allows a natural language search, so it
gets easier.  Peace,  Terre

Good morning,

I realise this is a subject which has been previously discussed but I
wonder if anyone has had experience of 'manufacturing' their own control
blocks? I have a student about to start a project  and would apreciate
any protocols.
