Since this info hasn't already been offered, I'd suggest that you
considering using a 'programmable' water bath or pressure cooker -- where
the temperature is reduced to 65 to 75 degrees, but the exposure time
extended to three to six hours.

I am Research assistant at Physiology department of Michigan state
university. I am using the (ß-Catenin Antibody (Carboxy-terminal Antigen)
#9587 for IHC on mice femur sections. I have used this antigen unmasking
method: For Citrate: Bring slides to a boil in 10 mM sodium citrate buffer
pH 6.0 then maintain at a sub-boiling temperature for 10 minutes. Cool
slides on bench top for 30 minutes.
The problem is that bone detachment always occurs so I wonder if there is a
method of retrieval that prevents bone detachment.
Waiting to hear from you soon.
Thank you for your consideration
Best wishes
