This reagent is a more concentrated version of ScyTek’s standard Decal Clear (DCR) and provides a faster rate of decalcification. This solution is ideal for processing tissues that will undergo special staining and procedures other than Immunohistochemistry. Hydrochloric acid-based reagents can negatively affect staining results of immunohistochemical procedures and other decalcification solutions should be considered.
