The objective of this study is to determine whether a residual moisture analyzer (RMA) can be an acceptable instrument for measuring the residual moisture in lyophilized demineralized bone matrix (DBM). Instruments from two different manufacturers with differing configurations and controls were compared: the Ohaus MB45 and Arizona Instrument MAX4000XL. The effects of various factors such as test temperature, drying profile, end point criteria, lift compensation, chamber configuration, and rehydration on residual moisture (RM) are examined. The performance of the RMAs is based on their ability to reproduce RM results obtained by the current standard gravimetric method. RMAs provide reliable, accurate and reproducible results in a number of industries that rely on the determination of RM. We hypothesize that RMAs are suitable for measuring RM in DBM and provide validation study data with optimized settings for these two instruments. Potentially, such studies will provide justification for allowance of this methodology as an acceptable alternative to the current gravimetric method allowed by American Association of Tissue Banks Standards.
