I've attached our protocol that we have successfully used in the past. 
Prior to using this procedure, I would deparaffinize your block, taking
it down to water.

Hope this helped,

Does anyone know about a digestion procedure for asbestos bodies on
lung tissue? Our pathologist remembers that someone used to do this at
SUNY. I'd appreciate your feedback.
