Does anyone have information regarding defatting and dehydration of bone
containing calcium sulfate type bone substitute materials (specifically
Osteoset made by Wright Medical)?  Will standard methods using ethanol and
acetone preserve this calcium sulfate?  We will run some samples through
using our standard protocol, but I was thinking that others may have
already had some experience with these bone substitute materials?
