I have been using the RISH from Biocare and you can use it on Decaled specimens.  they have a slightly different protocol (pretreatment) but we have found that you don't need to adjust with our form of decal.
Not completely finished with the validation process on these, but that is what we have found so far.

Subject: [Histonet] kappa and lambda by CISH

Hello All,
Anyone currently running Kappa and Lambda by CISH?  I am in the process
of validating the Ventana products.  Due to the ASR status of these
products the vendor is extremely 'tight lipped'.  I have the stains
worked up and have completed a 25 case validation. Does anyone know if
this test is not to be used on decaled specimens??
Thank you
