Fibroblast growth factor 18 (FGF18), a secreted heparin-binding polypeptide growth factor, is related to FGF8 and 175 and has been shown to have a number of functions in different organs. FGF18 is involved in cartilage growth and maturation and is implicated in the development of functional cartilage and bone tissue. It is also involved in processes within mature cartilage10-13 as well as being shown to have a role in enhancing regeneration and repair[1]. Fibroblast growth factor 18 (FGF18) acts as an important role in skeletal growth and limb development, potentially through the modulation of osteoblasts, chondrocytes, and osteoclasts[2].

  • Reconstitution Calculator

  • Dilution Calculator

The reconstitution calculator equation

Volume (to add to vial) = Mass (in vial) ÷ Desired Reconstitution Concentration

Volume (to add to vial) = Mass (in vial) ÷ Desired Reconstitution Concentration
= ÷

The dilution calculator equation

Concentration (start) × Volume (start) = Concentration (final) × Volume (final)

This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2

Concentration (start) × Volume (start) = Concentration (final) × Volume (final)
× = ×
