RE: Claw, hoof and horn

For keratin softening, some labs use Nair or some other commercial hair
remover, I have heard also of a lab using a potassium hydroxide solution
(sorry, don't know the dilution).  I use 1% ammonium hydroxide.

Subject: Claw, hoof and horn

Hello Histonet subscribers,

I work in a veterinary laboratory. I would like to know if there is
something that one can use to soften hoof, claw or horn in order for them to
be sectioned into microscope slides?

Thanks in advance,
