We are looking at the cause of fragmentation on our bone marrow core biopsies.   We are reviewing fixative times and decalcification times.  Has anybody else experienced fragmentation problems?  If so how did you eliminate the problem?   What other variables do I need to look at that might be the cause?   Thanks for the suggestions in advance.   We do use an AZF fixative and a gentle decal solution called Rapid-cal.
