No, but you should ask your pathologist where that "standard" comes from. S/he should know since s/he brought the issue up.

We have been cutting our tissue for amyloid staining @ 8 microns.  One
of my pathologists heard that 10 microns is now standard  and to use a
negative and weakly positive control.  Does anyone have any new
information in this area?  Thanks ahead of time!
