[Histonet] batching controls

Hi Jean,

We run one positive control for any given antibody that is ordered on
multiple cases and all are run at the same time on the same instrument.
Whenever possible that control has the patient tissue of one of the
cases on it.  That case is referenced for the pathologists reading the
other cases with that antibody so they can find the positive control if
they feel the need.

Hi Everyone,

I'd like to know how many labs batch their controls when the same
antibody is ordered on multiple cases. Do you run the control on a
separate slide, or with one of the cases ordered?

Thank you!
