I really cannot see what the problem is.
As far as I know there are no procedures for bleaching carbon, but as you can bleach melanin this should be sufficient for your pathologist .

Hi All,
One of our pathologists wants to bleach the carbons pigments from cytology
smears.According to Bancroft (page 263) it may be confused with melanin
deposition but treatment with bleaching agents will show carbon
unaffected. Is there any procedure?
