Factors which affect the measurement of the electrical properties of bone were examined. Environmental conditions such as the pH of the preserving solution and time of exposure of the sample to air, which controls the moisture content of the specimen, significantly affected the bone impedance. A change in pH of ×2 from the neutral solution (pH=7) caused a change in the resistance R. conductance β and capacitance C values of 70 per cent, 125 per cent and 190 per cent respectively.
