Help!  For years we have used Decal-Stat for decalcifying our bone marrow biopsies with good results.  For the past month we have been having problems with tissue loss and morphological damage with these specimens following decalcification.  Unfortunately, this was just brought to my attention.  Someone told me this morning that the company producing this product was sold and the formulation may have changed.  Is that true?
