Re: [Histonet] Re; Decal Process From the Past

From:Rene J Buesa

About this "washing after DECAL" issue I would like to call the attention to the fact that, even if the acid decal solutions are usually strong acids, the amount of carryover to the first formalin station is so minuscule that there is no possibility of a pH change in it, specially considering the fact that it is a neutral BUFFERED formalin solution.
  That is why after our decals we just washed the specimens in running water for no more than 5 minutes and we had no problems.
