Compatible with cultured cell extracts or scaffold cells.Osteocalcin is used as a bio-marker for the bone formation process. It is involved to study the effectiveness of a glycoprotein on bone formation used osteocalcin as a measure of osteoblast activity. It acts as a hormone in the body, causing beta cells in the pancreas to release more insulin. Further, it is used for the quantitative determination of intact human osteocalcin in serum and plasma samples using 96-well plates and a microplate reader.
