Subject: [Histonet] bone marrow decalcification

What method do you utilize for the decalcification of bone marrow
specimens that does not impair immunohistochemical staining? We have
noted that our immunos (not surprisingly) stain less intensely on
decalcified bone marrow than on non-decalcified tissue and would like to
minimize this effect.
