RE: fungus control tissue

From:"Johnston, Kathy"

I have some tissue that I haven't yet checked out, that our pathologists say have fungus in it.  I could send you some once I have it processed.  What you could also do which we have also used and works nice in a pinch, is if you can get some control plates from Microbiology with a fungal culture on it.  Process the colonies like you would for a cell block, and use that.  If you feel that you need some tissue element to go with it, just add some normal tissue next to the fungal button.
If you would still like some tissue from me, just send my your address!
Hope this helps!

      Does anyone have any fungus tissue, that can be used as control tissue, that
      they can share with me?   If so - email me and I will get back with you with my    
      mailing address.
