- The use with CrossLaps® for Culture (CTX-I) ELISA does not require termination of the osteoclast culture (In contrast to pit staining and scoring)
- Several samplings can be obtained from the same dentine disc, allowing for example, reversibility measurement of osteoclast activity in response to given compounds
Discs of devitalised dentine for use as bone resorption substrates.
Dentine discs permit the in vitro quantification of bone resorption using the CrossLaps® for Culture (CTX-I) ELISA as cultured osteoclasts, upon resorption, release collagen type-I fragment CTX to the osteoclast culture supernatant.
