Routine special stains only require a positive control as you are looking to see if the stain worked or not. Specimen is either positive or negative. No need for negative control. IHC uses both pos. and neg. controls because you are looking for varying intensities of staining as well as pos. or neg.
Best of Luck,
Does anyone run negative control slides with their GMS, AFB, and Gram
special stains, and if so why?
