EDTA can be used to decalcify delicate bones, such as bona marrow core biopsies.KOH is used to soften keratin (such as in toe nails) but is totally ineffective for decalcification.René

 I know someone used KOH with EDTA together to decalcify bone.
It is worthwhile to try KOH only to soft bone and kept dynamic labeling.
If anyone had tried successfully, please let us know.
