Our positive controls are from the lungs of pigs infected with P.

There is some merit in doing the right thing rather badly,

We order commercial Pneumocystis carnii (as well as AFB) control slides
from Newcomer Supply.  It seems they are having a shortage on tissue to
make these controls and they are indefinately backordered.  Anyone else
using commercial controls?  Where are you ordering from?
