Hello Histoneters,

I would like to add that washing after decalcifying is still not enough. The bone specimens have to be neutralized before processing ( putting them in the neutralizer solution), so there are no trace of acid when we process them.

One frequently overlooked point is washing after decal. Especially important with acid decal, we wash for an hour in running water.

Hello everyone,
Has anyone used the Cerner PathNet AP tracking system? I would like to hear about any feedback, good or bad.
Many thanks,
Pam Younes
