I would be most interested in finding out what other labs are using to
decal the bone marrow biopsy cores.  The current decal solution we are
using is too strong and affecting the Fe stains and some IHC stains.
The decal solution we use for regular bone is great.  Routinely we decal
the core for one hour.  We tried 45 minutes but the cores are still too
crunchy.  And I prefer not to face off the block and float on 5% HCl for
20 minutes.  Thanking you in advance.
