Product Details


Product Description

Osteoporosis is a disease of decreased bone density that affects the entire skeleton. Osteoporosis is caused by an increase in the activity of bone-destroying cells known as osteoclasts. In this experiment, students will model the bone-destroying effects of osteoclasts by placing bones in acid and protease and observing their deterioration (as would occur in osteoporosis). Kit includes: instructions, plastic petri dishes, collagenase enzyme, buffer. All you need: chicken, turkey or steak bones, glacial acetic acid, automatic pipettes, pipet bulbs or pumps, balance, distilled or deionized water.
