Osteoblast Mineralization Medium has been developed for the efficient induction of strong mineralization in human osteoblast cultures. Extensive extracellular calcium-deposits can be observed after 21 days by following an easy one-step protocol. The medium is optimized for primary human cells, but can also be used for bovine, murine, and rat osteoblasts as well as osteoblast cell lines.Recommended for:Human Osteoblasts (HOB)
All lots of PromoCell Osteoblast Mineralization Medium are tested for their capacity to induce mineralization in primary human osteoblasts. Approved in-house lots of media are used as a reference. In addition, all lots of media have been tested for the absence of microbial contaminants (fungi, bacteria, mycoplasma).
Contains all the growth factors and supplements necessary for mineralization of human osteoblasts.
