Cadaver skin

From:marjorie lehman <>

My laboratory is not affiliated with any hospital/medical facility, therefor I
can't beg for scraps (" ....Please Sir, may I have some more skin ....") to use
for method development. The samples I get are small/few/far between and I have
to use them for actual tests.
 All that sniveling leads to my question: can I use cadaver skin from a tissue
bank for IHC. I have used it for stains and it's ... well ... usable, but I
have serious doubts about IHC.
All thoughts/advice greatly appreciated.
