Positive Control Slides


Our company is a full service Histopathology company that serves a broad range of customers.  Many of the techniques defined by histology are performed by us everyday.  As such, our passion to create excellent quality slides through processing, cutting and staining makes us perfect to sell you the same control slides we use at our facility.

If you desire, consistent, high quality tissue control slides for your project(s), then look no further.  We can supply both small and large facilities.  Discounts are available for very large or consistent orders.

We have been supplying a distributor (thousands / Month) with 24 different histopathology controls slides for more than 3 years.  Chances are good that you may already be purchasing our control slides from larger companies like mercedes, mastertech, path supply, cancer diag.  Instead of buying from the retail, who gets the slides from the distributor who buys them from us, why not buy them direct?

Our tissues are all human and are acquired through tissue banks with no identifying characteristics.   All tissues are H&E stained and verified by a board certified pathologist before being further tested.

We sell both histology for special stains and immunohistochemistry (IHC) control slides.  While all of our controls are human, we also workup our in-house antibodies using other species like mouse and rat.  All controls sold by default are human.  If you need mouse or rat tissues, please inquire.




All tissues types are placed on positively charged adhesive slides.  

We have rigorously tested these slides for routine, special, staining without issues.  

All controls are cut to order and placed on pure white, positively charged slides.   They have also been used on the Ventana XT without issues of falling off.

All slides have the stain type, slide, and lot numbers printed on them using the signature slide mate.

 Tissues are cut at 5um, serially sectioned and placed on the top third of the slide to allow room for patient tissue. 

We place all sections on the slide in the same orientation for consistency. 

For special stain controls the first and last slide (2) of every pack is stained for positive verification.
