Our pathologists have relied on a vimentin stain to assess the quality
of fixation and processing.

Dear Histonetters,

Can anyone suggest an antibody that I could use on human FFPE samples
shows relative degrees of reactivity, based on variable factors such as 
fixation time or tissue autolysis?  I would like to assess the
of commercially available tissue bank samples.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
