Cultrex® Cell Invasion Assays
Cultrex® Cell Invasion Assays provide a system where the researcher can coat their plates having the option to choose from several extracellular matrix proteins. Since different cell lines and different treatments can result in a wide range of invasive potentials, the permissiveness of each matrix may also be optimized to fit each experiment by adjusting the coating concentration. Cultrex® Cell Invasion Assays are provided in multiple formats for evaluation against different extracellular matrices and matrix components: Laminin I, Collagen I, Collagen IV, and Basement Membrane Extract (BME)
