Angela, I don't know if there is a consensus, but one lab I know used a piece of appendix.

It's a good idea because there is a fair amount of material left over from surgical samples available for use. There are also epithelial cells, muscle tissue, and some lymphoid cells represented.

You could also combine a few different tissue types together in a block and use that.
