Re: [Histonet] Decalification and epoxy resin

From:Lesley Weston

If you mean miscible literally, then none of them are - they're all aqueous.
If you mean is it OK to use any or all of them before processing for epoxy,
then I'm not sure about the various acids, but I do know that EDTA works; I
used it as part of my protocol for many years.
