[Histonet] Quick Decalcification

First, there is no such a thing as "quick decalcification" since the time required is determined by the type of hard part (usually bone) and its calcium contents.
  All decalcifiers in some way affect the soft tissue and what is precisely looked for is having little effect on the soft tissue.
  On the other hand, I think you could dissolve bone, and everything else, in a few imuntes if you put your bone in sulfuric acid; you will get a quick and total destruction of everything.
  So "quick decalcification" is incompatible with cellular detail. They are inversely proportionate (speed of decalcification and soft tissue detail).
