With the Cell Sedimentation Manifold from Creative Scientific Methods, Inc., migration assays are convenient and reproducible

Studies of cell migration can reveal much in the study of cancer, arteriosclerosis, arthritis, autoimmune diseases, inflammatory conditions, and wound healing. Because of the many roles cell migration plays in pathological processes, any new technology for use in migration assays promises to have a significant impact on biomedical research. Development of the Cell Sedimentation Manifold by Creative Scientific Methods, Inc., marks the introduction of an in vitro monolayer migration assay that is convenient and reproducible, can be carried out in a small volume, and is relatively inexpensive. Designed by cancer scientists and created in collaboration with a high-tech materials manufacturer, the manifold "opens the door for new research into pharmaceuticals, combinatorial chemistry, tissue engineering, and environmental testing," says Michael Berens, CEO of Creative Scientific Methods, Inc.

Popular cell migration assays include measurement of the...
