Madison, WI – Platypus Technologies, LLC. announces the addition of the Oris™ Cell Migration Assembly Kit FLEX to its product line of cell-based assays. This new kit enables researchers to save time and cost by providing the flexibility to divide ninety-six experiments over four plates. Researchers can design 2-D and 3-D cell studies using partially filled plates without having to compromise the sterility or the integrity of the Oris™ plates. Each kit includes four packages of twenty-four Oris™ Cell Seeding Stoppers, four 96-well Oris™-compatible plates, an Oris™ Stopper Tool, and an Oris™ Detection Mask.
Cell migration is critical to a variety of in vivo processes including tumor cell metastasis, wound healing, and tissue regeneration. The new FLEX Assay complements the Oris™ line of cell migration assembly 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 Assembly kits are unique in that they enable the researcher to compare and visualize cell migration or cell invasion in real-time by using live cell stains with a microscope, digital imaging system, or microplate reader.
