[Histonet] MMA de-plasticizing

From:"Michele Wich"

Is there anyone out there doing MMA on un-decalcified bone? I'm wondering if there is any way to de-plasticize without putting the slides in heated xylene--a potentially explosive situation which technically would require explosion proof oven, hood, clothing, etc. I know that the flash point of xylene is quite low (26.1C, I think, which is barely above room temperature). Is there a way around this safety issue?
