VenaT4 Biochip: Chemotaxis, Transmigration and Invasion Assays

Details
*** NO AUDIO *** The VenaT4™ biochip is the only biochip available for studying chemotaxis and transmigration and is Cellix\'s answer to the transwell chambers. The biochips contain 4 microcapillaries in parallel, each with an embedded microporous membrane with pores of 2-10um diameter (depending on application). Underneath each membrane is a microwell. See image above. The microcapillaries of the VenaT4TM biochips are easily coated with ECM proteins using a standard yellow-tip pipette, giving the researcher greater flexibility. The VenaT4TM biochip is suitable for the following assays: Chemotaxis Assays: Cells flowing through the microcapillary of the biochip may attach to the protein coated membrane and migrate towards the chemokine in the underlying microwell. Transmigration Assays: Cells flowing through the microcapillary of the biochip may attach to the cell monolayer on the membrane and transmigrate through the cell monolayer and membrane towards the chemokine in the underlying m...
