[Histonet] Use of EDTA to soften tissue (non - calcified)

Good morning,

I'm a little stumped here - no it's not a first I know.

I've come across a lab that uses EDTA powder in their ice baths to soften GI
biopsies - I've never heard of this before. I've used it for bone or
calcifications when nothing else was available for a surface decal and
didn't like how it would sometimes affect staining.

Thanks in advance for any information.
