Your control tissue needs to be processed the same as your patient

Subject: [Histonet] Microwave processing and IHCs

Does anyone here have any experience with using microwave tissue
processing and then performing IHC stains on those same tissues?

We have new microwave processors and are trying to determine if we will
need to get all new controls for our IHCs that have been microwave
processed.  If yes, we will need to do validations on the controls, but
I am wondering if the MW will have any discernible effect on the
reactivity of the tissue.

thanks for any help!
