|Description:||Cell migration is a process by which cells move from one location to another. Cell motility is observed in unicellular organisms, and is essential for the development and maintenance of multicellular organisms. Cells often migrate in response to specific external stimuli, including chemical & mechanical signals. Errors during this process have serious consequences, including intellectual disability, vascular disease, tumor formation and metastasis. Cell Migration/Chemotaxis Assay Kit utilizes a Boyden chamber, where the cells migrate through a semipermeable membrane under different stimuli. Cell migration can be analyzed directly by reading fluorescence (Ex/Em = 530/590 nm) in a plate reader. Our assay is easy to use, sensitive and adaptable to high-throughput systems.|
|Applications:||Measure cell migration in response to stimuli.
Screen, study, or characterize compounds that influence chemotaxis/cell migration.
