I don't know about implants but we were having a terrible time with bone marrows coming off. Usually they came off during the HEIR using the steamer.
At that point we were placing our slides lying flat in a 55-60º oven overnight which usually helps tremendously with difficult tissue. This was followed with routine deparaffinization and hydration. It was suggested to us to try a 70º water bath for 2-4 hours for HEIR. I was doubtful that my antibodies would work but they did. In fact the staining was better with 2 hr HEIR than with 4.

Does anyone have any suggestions for staining bone implants? I am having
trouble with wash offs. I use charged slides and they are still washing off.
