I have a question concerning our beta-hcg antibody.  I ran this
immunoperoxidase stain the other day for one of my pathologists.  When she
read the slides she said all that stained were lymphocytes.  We currently use
placenta as our control (which stained correctly).  The patient tissue was a
testis tumor (this is where she said only lymphocytes were staining).  She
expected negative results according to the serum tests that were performed
prior to this.  Is this normal?  Any input would be appreciated.
