Cell Adhesion

Cell Adhesion

Cell adhesion is a complex mechanism involved in a variety of processes including cell migration & invasion, embryogenesis, wound healing and tissue remodeling.

Our CytoSelect™ Cell Adhesion Assays quantify cell adhesion using a microplate reader; no manual cell counting is necessary. Two formats are available:

  • CytoSelect™ ECM Cell Adhesion Assays quantify the adhesion of cells to one of a variety of extracellular matrix proteins. Adherent cells are quantified using either colorimetric or fluorometric detection.
  • CytoSelect™ Endothelium Adhesion Assays measure the interactions of either leukocytes or tumor cells with vascular endothelium. Quantitation is performed on a fluorescent plate reader.

Our CytoSelect™ ECM and Endothelial Biochips provide a microfluidic environment that closely mimics in vivo shear stresses. Cell adhesion may be visualized by brightfield or phase contrast microscopy.
