Maceration of Delicate Osteological Material by Fly Larvae

Authors : Z.Z. Majeed

Abstract: For embryological researches to study the development of fetal bones of different phases of pregnancy, we choose fly larvae for maceration as a gentle creature to consume all the soft tissue of the specimen leaving the bones very clean within few days. We had to simulate the natural process and do it in the laboratory. We invented several tools to collect fly eggs and transfer it to the maceration jar where the specimen kept in. We also made an incubation box to save larvae in cold weather.
