Dear Castillos,

We use brain tissue for CD56 IHC control. You can also use melanoma tissue
as IHC control for CD56. We have a tissue array product, UNC241
(http://www.pantomics.com/products/UNC241.htm), that can serve as IHC
positive control for CD56 as we as controls for >90% of the markers
currently used in routine IHC. I can send you some samples to try if you

Good morning everyone, 

I am working with human endometrial FFPE tissue and I am doing IHC for
NK using CD56 monoclonal antibody. I would like to ask which will be a
good positive tissue control and a negative tissue control  for CD56?.
Also, if there is a vendor from where I can buy these tissue slides?.
Thank you so much.

Sincerely, Luminita
