I would place a piece of both the Nevus and the Melanoma in my control block, it should give you peace of mind that stain is working.  The only problem I see with using a known MITF positive Melanoma control would be under staining cases that have weaker positivity.

Hi Histonetters
Was wondering if anyone has had any experience with MITF what controls would you use I have a fairly new pathologist that wants us to use Nevus' instead on melanoma and half the cases are staining and the other half are not what is your experience?  Any help would be greatly appreciated!
