[Histonet] Pre-cut controls

Does anyone know why IHC control slides cannot be cut ahead of time?  I've done it at other facilities, but I have been told it is not permissible here, without any explanation.  Any ideas?
Also, has anyone ever heard of refrigerating pre-cut IHC control slides?  One person suggested to me that they stopped cutting them ahead of time because they were getting condensation on them & the stains wouldn't work.  Then she informed me that they were stored in the fridge.  Seems to me the condensation would have formed upon removing the slides from a cold environment to a room temp.
Your thoughts/theories are appreciated.
