Free Control Slides

Histology Control Slides

Beginning this week, all 22ct histology control slides (see link below) bought will now come with 3 extra unstained slides FREE. Buy 22 get 25 controls.
Histology Control Slides

We have 24 different human histology control types to choose. Mouse and rat normal tissues are also available as control slide sets (inquire). Some controls like Fite, fungus, gram and helicobacter pylori are four of our most popular controls. They go fast, get them before they’re gone!

This promotion (3 free slides) will be species specific but not necessarily same tissue type. We will try to match same controls as bought but if they are not available, we will throw in another validated control type. If you order hospital grade human tissues you will get 3 similar unstained slides, free. Likewise, if you order Mouse or Rat 22ct, you will get 3 free mouse or rat slides respectively.

Extra slides will be marked with either our slide printer or hand written. Extra slides may or may not be sequentially ordered and will be placed at the back of each box.

Free slides are not guaranteed and will discontinue at anytime. 100ct boxes not included in the promotion.

Help With Fungus Type

Human spleen stained with GMS for fungus

We have this tissue (human Spleen).  It was bought for fungus and we did the GMS stain for it but not sure of it’s type.  To me (untrained eye), it looks like blastomycosis.  It stained positive with GMS, has budding and otherwise looks like round circles.  I’m sorry, I don’t have H&E pictures yet, they are coming later.

Since I am not a pathologist, just interested in all tissues, with all stains, I’m asking you to help me identify this fungus type.

What do you think this fungus type is?

Thank  you

What Kind of Fungus is This?

You know there’s something wrong with the GMS stain when everything turns black.  Time to make new reagents.  After they are all made, it’s right to test the stain with known control tissue.  After the staining was complete, a variety of black components covered my slides.  The GMS stain is a silver stain that fungi “reduce” and then appear black.  Unfortunately other tissues also can turn black and add confusion to the diagnosis of a type of fungus.  After the slides were dried for 24 hours, I took high-resolution pictures of the black substances in my tissues to hopefully get help in fungi identification from you.  Below are 6 different slides with possible fungi.  If anyone knows what any of these pictures could be please comment below.  All comments are welcome.
