Re: Fire on XE037 - Revivication related to damage to bodies
There was research  done about why the infestation worked less effective on smaller beings:
We have even more distressing news than the widespread XE037 contamination, there are reports of the XE037 mutating into various new variants. See data files on XE037a - XE037f. Research on the effects of these variants is ongoing. We do know that XE037d shows signs of PE062 immunity, and XE037b can revive various breeds of canines. However, revival is not as guaranteed as standard XE037 humanoid infection. Canine body size seems to influence the chances. See experiment tXE037b_c.
This also prevented small dogs from reviving. (no zombie Chihuahua’s. We tested it ).
Later we even discovered  that:
The primary factory in determining revivification of mammalian subjects
seems to be the amount of XE037 within the body at time of expiration. Smaller
mammals such as lab rats do not obtain this critical mass of XE037 before
going dormant. Larger canine subjects, however, do.
Making the link between size/amount of XE037 even more clear (See appendix A, for suggestions regarding further research on this subject).
And then further research  showed some possible situations in which the previous findings could be negated. It was possible for rats to be affected by XE037, in specific cases. (See appendix B for the updated guidelines for storage of XE037 samples and test subjects).
[i]Attempts to surpass the XE037 mammalian stasis limit have had some success.
Direct subcutaneous injection of XE037 quickly spreads through the body, and
while it immediately enters stasis after equalizing, it remains in the body.
There has been an incident in Lab 24, 2 casualties reported, one lethal.
A rat involved in the stasis breaking project was hooked to a monitoring
machine and left over night. Upon opening the cage, Simon Bellevue was
electrocuted, and another researcher at the opposite end of the lab sustained
severe current burns, despite never approaching the cage.
A post mortem on the rat involved in the electrocution incident has
revealed several changes to it’s internal anatomy centered around it’s
connection with the monitoring device, and large buildups of XE037 were
detected around the connection point.
There is a belief several other rat subjects experienced changes overnight
as well. This hypothesis was informed when an inventory check after the
incident found almost twenty rats had gone missing from their cages overnight.
But only in specific cases . So, in most cases you should not be worried that a hand your cut off a test subject experiences revivification (Also see ,). This same process is probably also why severe damage to the pre-mortem infected test subjects (by for example blunt force trauma ,, cutting , fire ,,, and various implosions and explosions ,) prevented revivification.
So far our best bets for the removal of the XE037 infection is the usage of PE062 on key personnel pre-mortem. With isolation to check for XE037d variants  (and immolation in the case of XE037d infestation). Further research into 4th dimensional transpositions , (taking appendix C considerations into account). And large scale brute force trauma on post-mortem subjects (see appendix D for suggestions of Rivtech weapon variants for use in large scale operations).
