RE: [Histonet] IHC Controls

From:"Sebree Linda A."

One of the reference labs we use does just that, fitting their positive
control tissue wherever on the slide it will fit.

I would like to ask a question about putting control tissue on
"unstained" slides. We occasionally receive unstained slides and need to
run IHC or ISH on them. We are using the Ventana Benchmark and Benchmark
XT. To save money we are wondering if it is ok to float control tissue
onto the existing tissue slide. Is there a problem with carefully
turning the slide so that the top (end with the writing) is dipped into
the waterbath and the positive control floated onto the top of the glass

Thank you for your help.
