     I have done Oil Red O staining on liver cells and got a very good
     pattern of intense red vacuoles of fat packed in around each cell
     nucleus. You will need a fatty, not-so-healthy liver, but there are
     lots of those around.

We have been using a frozen piece of renal cell ca. for a fat control. It is
just about gone and we will likely not be able to find another piece anytime
soon. I really liked it because it was such a nice clean staining pattern. My
question is: Does anyone have a suggestion for a fat control that is easy to
procure and not overloaded with fat? We put through almost all breast tissue
that isn't pure fat so none of that is really available to us.

Thanks for any suggestions.
