Re: Her2-Neu Control

From:Heike Grabsch <>

Hello Gregg,

I am not sure, whether you are looking for a special Her2-neu positive 
control. But in case you have no positive breast tissue, you can use 
pancreas (the islets of Langerhans will be strongly positive), hypophyse 
or even urothelium. When you look into the description of the Kit from 
Dako there is a list of normal organs which do stain with Her2-neu. I 
hope this helps.
