Yes you can, the cap standards just came out Tuesday with the revised part stating you do not have to run a negative reagent control using polymer based detection.  Only if you are still using biotin based detection kits do you need to run the neg. control

just wondering if we can start leaving the negative controls off of our immuno stains now as long
as our procedure says we can stain without them?   we use ventanas multimer detection systems.
thanks so much,
