We present experimental investigations of the mouse bone in its original form and after calcination. We used various techniques, like scanning electron microscopy, secondary neutral mass spectroscopy, particle induced X-ray emission, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. Among the major element's concentration profiles we also determined the observable trace elements of the mouse bone.
