Madison, WI – Platypus Technologies, LLC. announces the addition of the Oris™ Cell Migration Assay – TriCoated kit, 96-well plate format to its product line of cell-based assasys. This new product allows the researcher to save time and cost by comparing three surfaces for optimal cell migration on the same plate. The three surfaces are 1) Tissue Culture treated, 2) Collagen I coated, and 3) Fibronectin coated. Studies have found that cell lines migrate differently depending on the surface or extracellular matrix coating and it is important to select the right system for each application.
Cell migration is critical to a variety of in vivo processes including tumor cell metastasis, wound healing, and tissue regeneration. The new TriCoated Asay complements the Oris™ line of cell migration assay products that utilize patent pending, cell seeding stoppers to create a 2 mm detection zone in the center of each well. The Oris™ Cell Migration assays are unique in that they enable the researcher to compare and visualize cell migration in real-time by using live cell stains either with a microscope, digital imaging system, or microplate reader.
