We have been using tissues from an old autopsy case as our adenovirus IHC controls, and we are nearly out. I am not able to find another adenovirus case within our institution that we can use for controls.

Does anyone know a vendor that supplies these controls? Also, is there a reference lab that performs this test via IHC? Our usual three reference labs do not offer this stain. And lastly, if anyone has extra adenovirus-infected tissues, would you be willing to send us some? We would be willing to pay for it.

Thank you in advance for your help.
