Novel ways to simplify and standardize your cell invasion and migration assays

Cultrex® Cell Invasion Assays accelerate the screening process for compounds that influence cell migration through extracellular matrices. These assays offer a flexible, standardized, in vitro, high throughput format for quantitating the degree to which invasive cells penetrate a barrier consisting of basement membrane components in response to chemoattractants and/or inhibiting compounds.

The Cultrex® Cell Invasion Assays are available in 24 or 96 well options and have been adapted to multiple formats so that cell invasion may be evaluated against different extracellular matrices: Basement Membrane Extract (BME), Laminin I, Collagen I, and Collagen IV. The assay has been functionally tested with MCF7, HT1080, NIH3T3, and MDA-MB-231 cell lines. Each lot of kits has been tested to ensure that the invasive cell line HT-1080, penetrates a barrier consisting of an 8 micron polyester membrane coated with basement membrane components while the non-invasive cell line MCF7, does not penetrate this barrier. 

Studying cell migration without using matrices?  The Cultrex® Cell Migration Assay kit is an alternative to the invasion kits providing a screening process for compounds that influence chemotaxis rather than invasion.  The kit includes fluorescent staining reagents, buffers, cell dissociation solution and is available in a 24 or 96 well format.

Annexin V Kits and Reagents
The anticoagulant properties of Annexin V have proven to be a useful tool in detecting apoptotic cells. It preferentially binds to negatively charged phospholipids like PS in TREVIGEN® ANNEXIN V – For monitoring apoptosis via flow cytometry the presence of Ca2+ and shows minimal binding to phosphatidylcholine and sphingomyeline. Changes in PS asymmetry, which is analyzed by measuring Annexin V binding to the cell membrane, are detected before morphological changes associated with apoptosis occur and before membrane integrity has been lost.
