RE: [Histonet] A Good Bile Control for Fouchet's Procedure


The control slides for Fouchet should  be cut only when you need them they 
deteriorate once cut.
The stain should turn the bile a bluish green as opposed to the intrinsic 
 yellowish green of the bile.

Subject:	[Histonet] A Good Bile Control for Fouchet's Procedure

To the experts,

I currently have no good positive control for the Fouchet's SOP  for
detecting bile.  We are currently using old, pre-cut positive control 
that I am sure at some point demonstrated a strong positive staining
reaction.  We are currently seeing positive green staining, however it is
very light.  I am certain this is from the old, precut slides.

Any recommendations?  Has anyone stained gall bladder and is it positive?

Thanks for your ideas and suggestions.
