[Histonet] Ventana IHC Staining

We're noticing some issues with our IHC staining.  It's very random but
we've been seeing instances where the positive control tissue stains
fine but the patient tissue doesn't stain at all.  In one instance, we
re-ran the stain manually & it worked fine.  We generally place patient
tissue on the same slide as the control tissue using the red box control
slides (red box is painted on the back of the slide). We have some ideas
but wanted to check in to see if anyone else using Ventana
Instrumentation (Benchmark XT) has seen that problem as well.  Thanks
for any feedback - it's greatly appreciated.
