We have a piece of bone in MMA. The researcher wants us to get It out and do
paraffin. Is it possible? What will "melt" the MMA?

We also have some 50um slides cut ,that they want to see blood vessels and
collagen. Am I going to be able to do an EVG and trichrome or will the
plastic inhibit this process?
