RE: Bacterial pellet controls

From:"Morken, Tim"

Cindy, we mince up normal tissue (lung,liver, kidney) and then mince in the
bacterial cells. Thent he whole thing is wrapped in lens paper and goes in a
block. This gives you a control with normal tissue for a background check
and the bacteria coat the edges of the tissue.

Dear Histonetters,
Does anyone have a method of processing and embedded a small pellet of
bacteria. I am working on a research project and I need the bacteria for
a positive control. Thanks to all in advance.
