Just finished our inspection, and I have a couple of questions!

1.	How is everyone documenting Special Stain Control Slides?  Our
inspector didn't like our method, and thought that we could do better.  So
rather than use that system of default...we need to develop a log of some
sort for control slides.  Would anyone be willing to share their tried and
true method?  It must be simple and easy for our pathologists to sign off
2.	Could I please hear some references for Immunofluorescent
techniques.  We are just starting to develop these procedures here, and need
some reference material here.  I also have a question about what others are
using for control tissue for the fluorescent stains?  I need to acquire
control material for both direct and indirect fluorescence.  We will be
staining skin biopsies to begin with, and hopefully working toward renal
pathology as well. 

Thanks for any information you can share.
