Cell Adhesion Assays Help Evaluate Optimal Cell Attachment

Cell Adhesion Assays are pre-coated and ready-to-use in a black stripwell microplate format.

AMSBIO has expanded its range of products for cell growth and behaviour with a suite of Cell Adhesion Assays, designed to evaluate optimal cell attachment to extracellular matrices and assess factors that influence cell-matrix interactions.

Cell adhesion assays measure adhesion between cells or between a cell and a surface or extracellular matrix; and have applications in many areas of disease research, including neuroscience, cancer, and inflammation, among others.

AMSBIO CultreCoat® Cell Adhesion Assays are pre-coated and ready-to-use in a black stripwell microplate format that minimizes background, allows greater sensitivity and affords flexibility in the number of samples assessed.

The stripwell feature also allows multiple experiments to be conducted simultaneously using the same kit.

Calcein labeling allows direct comparisons between the number of cells that are loaded and the number that adhere.

Controls are provided for determining background and non-specific binding.

The new Adhesion protein array kit enables researchers on a single microplate, to assess adhesion on Basement Membrane Extract (equivalent to Matrigel), Laminin, Collagen I, Collagen IV, Fibronectin and Vitronectin.

The adhesion protein array kit is ideal for research applications that involve screening multiple different extracellular matrices.

For research applications focusing on just one extracellular matrix, AMSBIO has introduced a new range of Basement Membrane Extract, Laminin, Collagen I, Collagen IV, Fibronectin and Vitronectin Cell Adhesion Assay Kits.

These kits are supplied as one 96-well stripwell microplate pre-coated with the extracellular matrix of users choice and all the reagents required to conduct the assay.
