IHC reactions can be affected by decalcification especially if:
1- the tissue is not perfectly fixed before going into decalcification
2- decalcification is done at temperature above room temp.
3- decal solution is too acid, specially made with inorganic acids.
If at all possible decalcification should be done with a chelating agent, like EDTA

Does decalcifying tissue  (Calex II) affect the antibody reaction for IHC in bony tissue?
