The Radius™ Cell Migration Assay provides 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 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.
