A collection of the latest laboratory techniques for the study of bone and bone tissue. Described in step-by-step detail, these readily reproducible methods cover such topics as the isolation and culture of bone cells, the preparation of bone tissue for histological and ultrastructural analysis, methods for the measurement of bone strength and for mechanical studies, and how to use digital imaging techniques in the analysis of bone.

Editorial Reviews

"Bone Research Protocols is a most welcome compilation of methods. In it, many of the most productive laboratories in some of the most challenging areas of cell biology reveal detailed protocols that have been used to solve key problems. Short of spending a sabbatical in one of the eminent laboratories that contributed, this volume provides the best possible introduction to these methods." - TRENDS in Endocrinology and Metabolism
