    Journal of Applied Polymer Science
    Volume 13, Issue 1, Date: January 1969, Pages: 141-148
    Leo D. Kahn, Lee P. Witnauer

    Abstract
    An automated collagen solubilizing apparatus that maintains constant electrolytic conditions during solubilization is described. It was used in solubilization of 6.95% of a calfskin corium as monomeric collagen in citrate buffer at pH 3.44 and ionic strength of 0.44 and a temperature of 8°C. It is shown that this is the limit of solubilization for undenatured collagen in this buffer.
