Cell Culturing Expertise

  • Due to our valuable expertise in providing services and high quality cell culturing products we aim to provide the optimal cell culturing conditions in 2D or 3D.
  • We have a wide range of different cell lines, primary cells, tissue types and stem cells to offer for your assay(s).
Services we offer:

Proliferation Assay

  • We offer several methods to carry out proliferation assays – XTT cell proliferation assay, MTT cell proliferation assay and 3D culture proliferation assay
  • All methods are rapid versatile and accurate for quantifying cell viability
  • Can be used as a measure of compound efficacy
  • The 3D culture proliferation assay can be evaluated with several different matrices – BME, laminin I and collagen I
  • Below shows a schematic of an example of a proliferation assay (MTT assay) with both 2D and 3D cell culture models

Migration Assay

  • Assays can be carried out with tissue culture treated, collagen I, fibronectin or plates coated with all three coatings
  • The standard protocol used for the migration assay service is shown below:
  • Either a stopper or a biocompatible water soluble gel can be used to create the exclusion zones for cells to migrate into
  • The Oris® migration assays used within this service experience less variability than a scratch assays which has traditionally been used for migration/wound healing assays.
  • Can be used to assess the effect of compounds on the migratory behaviour of cells

3D Spheroid Invasion Assay

  • A variety of different matrices can be tested including basement membrane extract (BME), laminin, collagen I and collagen IV
  • Can be used to assess the effects of compounds on the invasiveness of cell models
  • The standard protocol used for the invasion assay service is shown below:
