We used the Dako HercepTest and there are positive controls with it (they are paraffin embedded cultured cells pearls). Since there are only few slides/test kit, we used to
batch our tests and use 1 control slide/run of several cases.
Sometimes we had + cases to be used as controls but a case has a particular
positivity condition, and the slides provided by Dako contain the different + values in the same slide.
Perhaps you could contact them and find out if they can sell you + slides.
