RE: [Histonet] decalcification

From:"Allen, Rhonda"

Hello, 
I wanted to put my 2 cents worth in about decacifying newborn mouse femurs.  At this age there should not be any calcium yet formed in the bones and do not need decalcifying.  I have done mouse heads at the PO age and I do not have any problem cutting them, and they do not need decalcified.

Dear all,
 
I have a question about decalcification. I have got some bone tissues 
(such as femur) from newborn pups, I would like to know if they need to 
be decalcified before paraffin embedding.
 
Thanks a lot.
