Cambridge Bioscience offers an easy, robust system to assess angiogenesis in vitro within 18 hours. Using an ECM gel matrix (derived from mouse sarcoma cells) which closely resembles an in vivo basement membrane environment, the assay allows tube formation by endothelial cells to be visualised under light microscopy.
HUVEC Tube Formation on ECM Gel. HUVEC cells from a standard tissue culture plate were incubated on an ECM gel. After several hours, tube formation can be visualized under a light microscope
