Decalcifying Solutions

 

  • Shelf Life is one year from date manufactured unless otherwise stated.
  • Store at 15-30°C unless otherwise stated.

 

Technical Notes:  Proper fixation is of critical importance when decalcifying bone.  Improperly fixed tissues will exhibit poor morphology following decalcification.  10% Phosphate Buffered Formalin is the recommended fixative although some applications may require a different fixative.  The choice of fixative should be determined by the user.

Decalcification End-Point Set #1051:  Used to determine complete decalcification if radiography is not available.
