Has anyone ever heard of cassettes and tissue totally disintegrating in
formic acid decal solution with a high heat on the solution for about 3
hours?????  We had 3 cassettes with tissue for decal placed in our
container on the platform for adding agitation.  Someone had moved the
knob to heat and this wasn't noticed until about 2-3 hours later, when
it was boiling!  We cannot locate the cassettes (I think someone
misplaced them) and others think they totally disintegrated with the
decal and heat...what does everyone think?????  In all of my years of
histology, never have I heard of anything so weird ......
