Mouse knee joints:
done lots of decalcified FFPWS for assessment of articular cartilage degeneration models.
See Histonet images for a Tol blue image.
Decal in 10 % EDTA for 3 days on a rocker at RT.
Sure....5days if you are worried.
No difference in Immuno-reactivity, imho.
If you want to use buffered Formic acid, use Formic acid; sodium formate.
Use of citric acid with Formic acid does not make a buffer.
It's just mixing two relatively mild acids.....
However, I am sure that Prof Kiernan can further enlighten us.
