A comparative electron microscopic study of chemical techniques for preservation of auditory ossicles as homografts


The ultrastructure of preserved ossicles at different shelf lives was compared. Homograft ossicles were harvested and preserved in 70% alcohol, 1:5000 Cialit (sodium-2-ethyl-mercuri-mercapto-benzoxazole-5-carboxylate), and buffered 4% formaldehyde at pH 7. The ultrastructure of each ossicle was studied by both scanning and transmission electron microscopy… (More)
