Cervix (with both endocervix and ectocervix) contains both glycogen (ecto) 
and mucin (endo).

[Histonet] RE: alcian blue-PAS control


We use a multi-tissue control.
Our control block contains appendix, umbilical cord and liver (for 

The optimum control (if you can get it) would be an intestinal metaplasia 
of the stomach and combine this with a mucin-producing mesothelioma.

To you all, any further ideas?
