[Histonet] ER control tissue

As we move forward with standardization in IHC testing (HER2, EGFr, ER, PR, CD20, CD117, etc.), we really need to start thinking about using control tissue (including TMAs) fixed and processed in your own laboratory.  Although useful for proficiency testing, results obtained on someone else's tissue will not completely validate your testing.

Hello all -

Does anyone know of a source to order ER controls for IHC    --  other than
Pantomics in California?   Ideally  I'm looking for an array that would
contain a strong (3+), moderate (2+), and low/negative (1+) representation.

Thanks for any help!
