Currently we use a CD30 from NeoMarkers... Pretreatment includes a 20"
heat-induced epitope retrieval in 1mM EDTA(pH 8.0).  We include a rabbit
anti-mouse IgG  "amplification" step in our automated staining process.

As far as controls are concerned, 99.9% of the time our pathologists
want a Hodgkin's for a control when they order a combo. of CD30 and
CD15.  We also have an anaplastic large cell lymphoma as a control, but
I don't think we've ever deliberately pulled that one to use...
