Hello Tanisha,
We feel that no one tissue is suitable on its own, therefore we create a
multi-tissue control block for our H&E stains. The tissues included are
liver, skin, appendix, and placenta. This enables us to assess the stain
from a number of different perspectives according to the tissue types
included. We use small portions of each type, embedded into a
rectangular shaped mold.
Hope this helps you

Hello All:
Can I get some of you to share with me, what types of tissue you use to
assess the quality of your H&E? Or what tissue type do you believe to be
best for assessing the quality of an H&E?
