[Histonet] IHC staining on decalcified tissue. .

I have a single protocol for each antibody; but on this protocol I address each possible fixative and decalcification variable that may be requested with the particular antibody (formalin, B+, EDTA decalcification, formic acid decalcification, HCL decalcification etc). Sometimes the protocol remains the same for all variables but most of the time I will need a different pretreatment time and/or antibody dilution/incubation time. Hope this helps.

Does anyone have a different IHC staining protocol and/or modification for specimens that have been decalcified?  CAP asks on the IHC checklist if the "procedure manual includes appropriate modifications to address such specimens."
