Combination fixative/decalcifier

From:Gayle Callis <>

Try formalin/formic acid combination, these are commercially available from
several sources.  The formic acid is approx 10% (MSDS info I have but could
vary with manufacturer).  These solutions work quite well on small bone or
calcified tissues.  Richard Allan, Decal Corp, Shandon, Surgipath, some
available through Fisher, etc.
