The OsteoImage™ Mineralization Assay is a rapid, fluorescent in vitro assay for assessing bone cell mineralization. The OsteoImage™ Assay can quantitate in vitro mineralization by osteogenic stem cells, primary osteoblasts, and osteoblast-like cell lines. It is based on specific binding of the fluorescent OsteoImage™ Staining Reagent to the hydroxyapatite portion of bone-like nodules deposited by cells.
Unlike typical histochemical methods such as von Kossa and Alizarin red, neither of which is hydroxyapatite specific, the OsteoImage™ Assay eliminates multiple steps or tedious extraction steps.
The OsteoImage™ Assay is the newest addition to Lonza‘s line of products for bone research. Increase the speed, sensitivity and ease of measuring mineralization in your cell cultures with the OsteoImage™ Mineralization Assay.
