RDO GOLD

RDO Gold Product
RDO Gold Logo

RDO Gold is a new clear and controllable decalcifier that is specifically designed for when biopsies contain minimal amounts of calcium and will provide less aggressive decalcification on both large and small tissue samples that the nucleic acids within the cell are not altered. The result is superb, sharp and crisp nuclear staining that one expects from good hematoxylin staining. There is no folding of tissues and since it is clear and nonprecipatite, there is no filtration required - that saves you time! This is the decalcifier to use when you are looking for stellar morphological representation of bone biopsies.

RDO Gold Field Uses:

  • Anatomic
  • Clinical (Surgical Pathology & Autopsy Pathology)
  • Comparative Anatomy
  • Dental Pathology
  • Dermatopathology
  • Experimental Pathology
  • Medical (Surgical Pathology & Autopsy Pathology)
  • Oral Pathology
  • Special (Anatomy)

RDO Gold is produced at a single quality-controlled facility and warehoused at central locations and is readily available from stock for same day shipments. Because is is a non-hazardous chemical, its properties allow air shipment for next day delivery.

Our mission continues to be to make your work routine easier. We are certain that you will agree that there is no better commercial decalcifier available for speed, staining and retention of nuclear detail.

RDO Gold Technical

Both RDO and RDO Gold are unsurpassed decalcifiers that can be tailored to suit your specific lab routine. As with most acids, nuclei acids in the cell can become subject to ribonuclease digestion, resulting in a loss of basophilic properties. Careful monitoring should be used to avoid over decalcification. Decalcification will depend on the thickness and density of specimens. Overnight decalcification should be avoided. Full Strength is used for hard compact bone, ie. femur heads. Both RDO and RDO Gold may be diluted with tap water to permit multipurpose use. Dilution with tap water is recommended for mildly calcified specimens such as bone marrow biopsies (core). In either case, the standard procedure should be to check the specimen periodically to determine the endpoint of decalcification.
