Does anyone have experience with perfusion of large bones? I have an 
investigator that works mainly with pig jaw bones and wants to know if 
there is anyway to perfuse them. Regular formalin fixation has not given 
them the results that they need so she is looking for other ways to fix 
the bones. If there is no way to perfuse large bones, are there any 
other protocols to formalin fix these that someone can send to me?

Thanks for your help
