We run one control per batch and file them by date.  If 2 batches are run
on the same day, the 2nd control is marked with #2  The run date is also
printed on the patient slide so it can be matched later.

PS  Sure enjoyed your Palm Springs sun at the CA. meeting and sorry my
priorities were selfish and didn't get a chance to meet and tour your lab.
Just a Seattle guy who has to set "sun" priorities. :)  I'll be back, but
retired and still want to visit you and your lab.  My visit won't be
rushed :)  Oh man, just 65 days or so more :)
