From:"Fischer, R. B"

We have been using "RDO" and "CAL-X" decal solutions for some time now.
After the specified times in the decal solutions, the specimens are
rinsed in running tap water for about 10 minutes before being placed
back in 10%NBF for routine processing. We were rinsing to get rid of the
nitric acid. My questions are (1) Is this rinse step necessary? If it
is, (2) How long is an adequate time for rinsing?(3) How are other labs
handling the specimen post decal, and before processing?
