Bone decalcification


Bone decalcification

While mineral acids offer a faster decalcification rate, their protocols are more time/temperature sensitive and processed specimens are not optimal for molecular studies. A recent report demonstrates that in this case, recovery of nucleic acids is dramatically reduced.

For this reason, we use of either EDTA as “soft” decalcifiers, as they are more suitable for molecular studies.
