ABSTRACT. The content of chemical elements in the diaphysis samples of the femur of the bull at various stages of demineralization was studied by energy dispersion X-ray spectroscopy. Regularities of the change in the content of the studied chemical elements in bone samples were established depending on the time of their demineralization. During the experiment, a constant decrease in the relative percentage of chemical elements forming the bone mineral phase and an increase in the relative percentage of chemical elements forming the bone organic phase were found. Proposed approach can be used in evaluation and quality control of obtained products of biological implantation.
KEYWORDS: elemental composition, bone implants, demineralized bone matrix.
