RE: [Histonet] Bone decalcification

From:Rene J Buesa

 I seldom intervene in "thread discussions" but this time I want to say that I agree with Douglas (although my agreement has no relevance in itself).
  Time and again I see that after a question it follows a correct answer and, in spite of that, people keep repeating the same thing, like if they don't want to waste the opportunity of appearing knowledgeable by repeating a correct answer.
  It is my opinion in this subject (that also in itself bears no real weight) that once a question has been answred correctly we all shoul refrain from keep sending the same correct answer, and even more, refrain from making sarcastic or even sometimes insulting comments. 
  And now you all have the opportunity of contradicting what I have just wrote (that also in itself would be absolutely irrelevant!).

Comments like this may tend to keep people from asking questions. This is a
resource for even the simplest questions. I consider this forum a learning
tool and when people can not ask these questions because they are made to
feel foolish by others then something is wrong.

There are no stupid questions.....
If you can't say anything nice.....

I don't know what school you went to but I would want my money back.
The last thing you want is to put unfixed, fragile cells into acid and
allow them to rot while the bone decals. What would be left to fix

I just wanted to know other histo techs opinions on bone
I learned in school that you decal the bone than you fix it. I have a
pathologist who claims she learned it the hard way, and that it is
better to
fix the bone than decal it. What did you learn on how to do this
This pathologist claims that fixing prior to decaling keeps the cells
intact. Any opinion on your procedure or your technique is appreciated.
