The Millicell® µ-Migration Assay Kit is a slide-based platform that can be used to visualize and measure the effects of chemoattractants on the migration of adherent cells in real time. The kit is useful for studying metastatic behavior or the effects of toxins. The Millicell µ-Migration Assay replaces the filter used in traditional Boyden chambers with microchannels. Cells migrating in these channels can be directly observed and their progress can be quantitatively measured. The kit also provides a stable linear concentration gradient for up to 48 hours. With high optical properties similar to those of glass, the Millicell µ-Migration slide is suitable for the analysis of slow- or fast-moving cells by video microscopy. Up to three assays can be run in parallel on each slide with approximately 100 to 200 cells per assay. The kit comes assembled and ready to use with a Millicell µ-Migration slide and migration assay reagents.
