[Histonet] IHC Control Questions

  I am writing on behalf of our supervisor.

For those of you that place the control tissue on the same slide as the 
patient, do you precut the control blocks or cut them at the same time 
as the patient? If you precut, how are you storing the slides and how 
long can they be stored?

We will be starting off with a control block with 3 tumors in it. Are 
you acquiring your control material from positive patient cases or are 
you purchasing your control blocks?

I think we are going to need to move to either a sausage roll or micro 
array. I believe they are putting the final numbers together and we are 
getting a Bond.

Thanks for any feedback
