García-Donas, J.G. and Dalton, A. and Chaplin, I. and Kranioti, E.F. (2017) 'A revised method for the preparation of dry bone samples used in histological examination : five simple steps.', Homo : journal of comparative human biology., 68 (4). pp. 283-288.
Histology of dry bone tissue has many scientific applications. The histological analysis of bone requires the production of good quality thin sections. Many researchers have developed new histological techniques and/or they have refined existing ones. In this paper, we describe a revision of histological techniques for obtaining thin sections from modern dry bone. The method is easy to apply and the equipment required is commonly found in a histology laboratory. In comparison to other techniques presented in the literature, this adapted method reduces the number of consumables and steps, thereby improving the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of the procedure.
