Radius 2-D Cell Migration and Wound Healing Assays• Defined circular area for precise cell migration measurement
• Qualitative, quantitative, endpoint or real-time analysis
• Compatible with all cell stains, dyes and labels
• Suitable for automation
The Radius Cell Migration Assays provide a unique alternative to conventional cell migration assays using the Boyden chamber. Unlike Boyden chamber assays which may only be analyzed at endpoint, the Radius assay uses a proprietary cell culture plate containing a carefully-defined biocompatible hydrogel (Radius Gel) spot (0.68 mm) centralized at the bottom of each well. When cells are seeded in the well, they will attach everywhere except on the Radius Gel, creating a cell-free zone. Following cell seeding the Radius Gel is removed, allowing migratory cells to move across the area and close the gap.
This format provides a robust in vitro system to measure 2-D cell migration, screen potential inhibitors, study cytoskeleton reorganization events or investigate wound healing. It is adaptable to liquid handling equipment and HCS instrumentation.
The Radius Cell Migration Assays are available in 24-, 96- and 384-well plate format. They are also provided with 24-well plates precoated with collagen I, fibronectin or laminin to help promote cell adhesion.
Principle of the Radius Cell Migration Assay
Cell migration time course.
HeLa, HT1080 and NIH3T3 cells were seeded at 100,000 cells/well overnight. After removal of Radius Gel, cells were allowed to migrate for the various times shown.
Software Analysis Tools for Gap Closure Assays
There are a number of software programs available for the analysis of cell migration images. One of these is CellProfiler™ Cell Image Analysis Software offered free-of-charge by the Broad Institute*. Please use the link below for the download.
