A rapid rate of isolation of molar-tooth germs from rodents aged from 19 embryonic days to 7 days postnatal can be achieved. The procedure is of direct application to biochemical studies of odontogenesis where relatively large amounts of tissue are often required. The quality of dissection, assessed by morphological and organ culture criteria, extends the application of this procedure to general use in the isolation of molar-tooth germs from rodents.
