Marilyn, The referrences we have listed for the rehydration procedure 

Rizvi, Asif; Reconstitution of dried tissue, ASMT San Francisco
Angus, Coral; NSH Annual Symposium, Salt Lake City, 1981

Needless to say these are not complete referrences and I could not 
produce them if asked. Please let me know what else you find. Thanx,
