[Histonet] AFB Question

From:"Janice A Mahoney"

Hello Netters,
I have a question that may seem very silly to most of you but I'm asking to make a point and to see what feedback I get.
On special stains our practice is to place the control tissue on the same slide as the patient tissue.  We are automated and the cost of performing the stain is much less this way.
Has anyone ever heard of the bacteria from an AFB control section washing off and ending up "on" the patient tissue on the same slide?
Any and all feedback is appreciated.
