[Histonet] Decalcification and marking

Plastic fasteners sound good during decalcification, and I'm sure what I am

processing. Or at least test them against your clearing agent.  I staple the
bags for processing.  I don't try to remove the staples after processing,
just cut the bags open with scissors.
