Product Details

Chemotaxis describes the movement of cells toward or away from a chemical stimulus in their enviroment. Cell chemotaxis plays a pivotal role in the progression of cancer and other diseases.

CytoSelect™ Cell Migration Assays are ideal for determining the chemotactic properties of cells. The 8 µm pore size is suitable for most cell types including epithelial cells, fibroblasts, and cancer cell lines.

CytoSelect™ Chemotaxis Assay Principle. Migratory cells move through the polycarbonate membrane toward a chemoattractant underneath the membrane inserts.
