I make my own 10% formic acid decal solution and use for large bone samples
without any damage.  And I get nice H&E staining.

I need to speed up the decal process on some large bone samples.
What is the highest precentage of formic acid that I can use without
damaging the bones?

I am using sodium formate with formic acid now.
