[Histonet] digesting soft tissue

From:Karl Garsha

I'm trying to find a good cocktail for non-specific digestion of tissue 
from bone samples--only the mineralized bone needs to be left 
unscathed.  I'm looking for a relatively cheap solution that will yield 
nice clean bones.  I'm aware of a product from Fisher, but it costs 
about $70/100ml. It seems to me that there must be a simple solution 
that I'm just not aware of (aside from culturing maggots). Thanks in 
advance for any suggestions.
