The CytoSelect™ wound healing assay kits assess the migratory, proliferation and wound healing characteristics of cells. Overcoming the weaknesses of the traditional scratch method by using proprietary treated inserts that can generate a defined wound field or gap without impeding the proliferation or migration of cells, the CytoSelect™ wound healing assay kit produces accurate and consistent results.
Benefits of using the CytoSelect™ Wound Healing Assay
• Precise - creates a 0.9mm gap
• Consistent results
• Overcomes many of the weaknesses of the scratch assay
Closure of MEF/STO cells
STO cells were tested using the CytoSelect™ 24-well wound healing assay. Cells were cultured 24h until a monolayer formed, at which time the inserts were removed to begin the assay. Cells were monitored under DAPI labeling and cell staining for determining percent closure.
