Provide an environment for cells that closely resembles their state
Ideal for a variety of cell culture applications—chemotaxis, drug transport, tissue remodeling, and invasion studies
Available in three membrane materials and three pore sizes, these permeable supports satisfy your diverse cell culture requirements. A suspended design prevents media wicking between the insert and the plate well. It also allows for co-culturing without damaging cells attached to the plate's growth surface. Openings in the insert wall permit pipet access to the plate well. Choose either a polycarbonate (PC), polyester, or PTFE collagen-coated membrane. PC and polyester membranes are cell culture treated for optimal cell attachment. PC membranes are compatible with most organic fixatives and stains. Transparent polyester membranes provide excellent cell visibility, assessment of cell viability, and monolayer formation using phase contrast microscopy. PTFE collagen-coated membranes are biologically stable and provide a consistent matrix that retains the membrane's porosity. The collagen coating promotes cell attachment and spreading, and allows cells to be viewed while being cultured. Supports some sterile and preloaded in Cluster plates or dishes.
