Migration assays monitor cell movement in 2 dimensions across a surface
Studying cell motility and morphology are vital aspect to the fields of cancer research and wound healing. Platypus’ exclusion zone technologies utilized in the Oris™ and Oris™ Pro assay formats ensure consistent cell-free regions for accurate, reproducible quantification of cell movement.
Two Detection Zone technologies were developed in order to best suit your research aims.
Oris™ Migration Assays use a physical “stopper” barrier to create a cell-free detection zone in the center of each well of a 96-well plate. The stopper assay is ideal for researches who require greater manual control. For instance, if your cell type requires a lengthy adhesion period.
Oris™ Pro Migration Assays use a soluble gel to create the central cell-free detection zone in the center of each well of a 96- or 384-cell plate. This automation friendly format will speed up your experiment by allowing for easy use with liquid handlers and high content imagers.
