Re: trouble with bone marrows

From:Rena Fail <>

  IF your bm bxs are 2-3mm in thickness then your processing times could 
very well be your problem. They need a little longer in 100% 
ethanol,xylene, and parraffin than cores less than 2mm thick. 20 minutes 
total in 100% ethanol 25 in xylene 20-25 in paraffin.
