Re: [Histonet] Control tissue for skin DIF
if you find a source, please let me know. We save cases that stain
positive, but we don't have a full spectrum of known controls. Our dermpath
is content with that (no, really, this is a huge, huge point, this lady is
not content with anything else). I've contacted several sources. They do not
or will not commit to storing frozen section slides and still guarantee
their antigenicity, which I can't blame them because our own controls fade
after a while.
I know this wasn't that helpful, but hell, it's Friday, so let's enjoy
