Slice it up and process it - just like tissue.

Is this right out of the package (ugh) or do you have to do something to it?

Try cutting up a Slim Jim meat snack and processing it.  That is what we use.  1 Slim Jim can give you a lifetime of controls.  We got this from some folks who moonlight at the AFIP.

Hello Histonetters:

Does anybody have a good source for purchasing gram +/- controls.

Our last real good gram control was from some road kill that we worked up.  Obviously that method is very hit and miss. (pun)
Thank you in advance.
