Cell Invasion Assays

Cell invasion assays allow you to monitor cell movement through an extracellular matrix, in three (3) dimensions.  Cell invasion is of particular concern in cancer research, where invading tumor cells lead to metastasis, the deadliest aspect of the disease.

Platypus Technologies’ Cell Invasion Assays allow you to monitor real-time cellular behavior in a physiological relevant micro-environment that more closely resembles in vivo conditions.

Oris™ 3D Embedded Invasion Assay allows cells to be seeded while fully enclosed within the 3D gel matrix from very start of the assay setup.

Oris™ Pro Invasion is your bridge between the 2D and 3D world. Cells attach to the plate surface in a similar manner as the Oris™ Pro Migration Assay. After adhesion, the cells are overlaid with a thick collagen layer to allow cell to transition from a 2D culture to then begin moving into 3-dimensional invasion environment.
