Hi, Everyone,

Happy Friday! I was wondering if anyone knows of a histological method to distinguish strontium in bone vs. calcium? My understanding is that mineral stains (von Kossa or Alizarin Red S) do not distinguish, but was wondering if anyone has a procedure I may not have done or seen? I have ways to get at the answer, but for completeness sake, I thought I should ask the experts. Thanks for your help!
