Decal solution for large specimen
First I want to thank all who help me with undecal bone procedures. Special
thank to Diane from Cleveland, Ohio.
I use formic acid with sodium formate or sodium citrate for decalcification
of bone in the laboratory. This procedure is excellent and I have not
problem staining with Mayer's hematoxylin. My new boss want to use HCL or
Nitric acid to decal large bone specimen because formic acid is too slow. I
need procedure for using these strong acids and how do you monitor the end
result. I will using this method to decal mandible etc. Thank again for any
help that is given.
