Carrie Disbrow notes the use of sections of human medullary type
thyroid carcinoma as an amyloid control.
This is what I've usually seen used in recent years. Many but not all
medullary thyroid carcinomas contain amyloid. I've seen good results
with the right material.
A couple of questions I've asked on Histonet and never gotten a reply to:
Amyoidosis is quite easily produced in mice. Why isn't this tissue
available for control use?
Has anyone tried Anatech's "Amyloid Red" as a substitute for Congo Red?
