A Leukocyte Adhesion Assay Performed on BMG LABTECH’s FLUOstar OPTIMA
Application Note May 14, 2009
Gene regulatory networks were used to identify novel regulatory hubs genes involved in the inflammatory response in human umbilical endothelial cells (HUVECs). To assess the potential role of these genes a leukocyte adhesion assay was utilized to screen for potential inflammatory markers. The FLUOstar OPTIMA microplate reader from BMG LABTECH was used for cell based bottom optic measurements and well scanning. The results show good reproducibility and can be adapted to e.g. primary neutrophils.
