Product Details

In the floating matrix contraction model, a freshly polymerized collagen matrix containing cells is released from the culture dish and allowed to float in culture medium, and contraction occursin the absence of external mechanical load and without appearanceof stress fibers in the cells.

Cell Biolabs’ Cell Contraction Assays (Floating Matrix Model) provide a simple, in vitro system to assess cell contractivity and screen cell contraction mediators.  The  proprietary Cell Contraction Plate eliminates the matrix releasing step of the conventional contraction assay, providing a faster, higher-throughput method to assess cell contraction.
