Same inspectors advised our special stain and IHC controls should have at least two if not three different validation means (PCR, micro, serology, etc.)
Anyone out there actually doing this?
Just so you know, I've spoken with a few suppliers on control slides and they do not do this type of validation on their control material (surprise, surprise!)
