Rat Osteoblast Primary Cell Line - fetal rat calvaria (Apr/18/2002 )

I was wondering if anyone produces a primary prep from fetal rat calvaria for in vitro use in osteogenesis.  We have been having some problems here maintaining a consistancy between preps and hands.  I would like to pick someone's brain on the topic!


I have worked alot with primary rat bone marrow cells and bone cell lines. I am familiar with the rat calvarial models. You are welcome to e-mail me at or call me at 905-847-7712 ex 222 with your questions
