Re: Storage of Cut Alcian Blue Controls(Umbilical Cord)

From:Sarah Jones

Dear Kevin,
  I think someone is "pulling your leg".  I have never heard of such a thing for AB controls, or any controls for that matter, that I can think of.

Dear All:
This is what we would call a "Man in a pub told me" I have no axcess to the person, a histologist of some merrit though, so I can not substanitate or back up the reasoning behind the claim and for that I am sorry. I will on the other hand ask if I get the chance, and I will get back to you. Also my Control slides are in a draw now and I am still none the wizer. 
Yours faithfully,
A. Kevin Williams.
