We dry the control slide at the same time tha being
stained, since controls are supposed to be han manner as
the test tissue. That being said, I guess if that rule, we would cut the control on the same sample. :-)
"Other people say that, after they dry the slide, they dip the slide in paraffin, to cover the
that the air doesn't touch the tissue during the months before slide
used in a stain."

We only cut enough slides for 6 months, and date them. Other people
put their cut control slides in a slide box with a lid after dryi and
then place the box in the refrig, as cold slows down the che change,
and the lid keeps the moving air off the slide. Other that,
they dry the slide, they dip the slide in par tissue,
