RE: [Histonet] Helicobacter

From:"Mike Pence"

We take a + case from our micro dept and the plate it off for us. We
grow 4-6 plates and then swab the growth off and suspend it in broth.
The broth is sectioned, processed and placed in block. This will last us
for a couple years at a time.

What is everyone using for a Helicobacter control (non-ihc)?  We are
currently buying our Helico control slides from Master Tech and using
the Diff Quick method to stain them.  Our pathologist is not very happy
with the controls so we need to find a different source.  Any help would
be appreciated!
