An EDTA-KOH method to expose bone cells for scanning electron microscopy.

Abstract

To observe bone cells by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), the mouse parietal bones were processed by decalcification with EDTA and digestion of collagen fibers with KOH to remove the bone matrix, in addition to the conventional preparation for SEM. The critical-point-dried specimens were split into two membranous pieces along the gaps formed by removing… (More)
