Cultrex® Cell Migration Assay

Cultrex® Cell Migration Assays were originally created in an effort to accelerate the screening process for compounds that influence chemotaxis, which is a fundamental component of angiogenesis in embryonic development, immune responses, and wound healing. These assays offer a flexible, standardized, multi-well format for the quantification of the degree to which cells migrate in vitro in response to chemoattractants in the presence of inhibitors or stimulants. The Cultrex® Cell Migration Assays are provided as either a single 96 well plate providing capacity for large screening experiments or as 24 individual inserts providing flexibility for smaller studies.

Available Size(s): 24 Tests, 96 tests Catalog Number: 3465-024-K Category:

Description

The Cultrex® Cell Migration Assays utilizes a simplified Boyden chamber design with an 8 micron polyethylene terephthalate (PET) membrane.  Cells attach to and migrate through the membrane in response to chemokines and growth factors.  The porosity of this membrane is most appropriate for adherent epithelial or endothelial cells based on cell size. These assays are available in 24 and 96 well formats.

The CultreCoat® Cell Migration Assays provides a tool for assessing chemotactic response through an uncoated membrane and is available in 24 and 96 well formats.
