Re: [Histonet] RE: Controls for Immunos fixed in B-Plus

From:"Bryan Hewlett"


In short, YES!
GLP and NCCLS IHC guidelines indicate that tissue controls should be fixed
and processed in the same way as the patient tissue.
You should make your own comparisons regarding IHC performance on B-Plus
fixed material vs your routine fixative.
