decalcified tissues and processing

From:"Jennings-Siena, Debbie"

Hi everyone,
I am in need of some expert help with our Decalcified tissues.  The
pathologists are getting very thin pieces of bone cut on our Diamond Saw,
and we are decalcifing them in CAL RITE from Richard Allan.  We are washing
them thoroughly after decal and trying to do things by the book, however,
after they are processed they are very hard again.  I was wondering if
anyone, had any ideas on how to optimize processing.

Thanks for your help.
