Control slides that are used with the PathVysion ? HER-2 DNA Probe Kit.
We bought MDA-MB-231, ATCC HTB-26,  and Hs 578T, ATCC HTB-126, cell lines from you to make Her-2/neu control slides because according to Vysis Her-2/neu kit instruction sheet, they use these two cell lines to make their normal /cut-off slides.

According to “Guideline for HER2 testing in breast cancer”, it is said that:
Standardized control materials, either purchased products or conforming to defined manufacturing standards (for example, cell lines of the European Collection of Cell Cultures or those produced by the National Institute of Standards and Technology [NIST]) or defined by the laboratory director, must be consistently used by each laboratory with each run of tests.  

My question is : Do you have such kind of document we could use?

The customer should contact Abbott for the control slides that are used with the PathVysion ? HER-2 DNA Probe Kit.
