Platypus Technologies announces the addition of the Oris Cell Invasion Assay Kit, 96-well format, to its product line of cell-based assays. This assay allows researchers to view cells invading into a 3-Dimensional, Basement Membrane Extract (BME) in real-time by using a microscope or digital imaging system. Invasion can be quantitated in the same well by staining cells and using a plate reader.  The Oris Invasion Assay kit is supplied with an Oris BME coated 96-well plate, Oris BME solution, unique Oris Cell Seeding Stoppers, Oris Stopper Tool, and Oris Detection Mask. Unlike invasion assays using BME coated, cell culture membrane inserts, the Oris Invasion Assay does not require the cells to pass through a membrane. The Oris Cell Seeding Stoppers create a 2 mm detection zone where adherent cells cannot invade until after the stoppers are removed. Seeded cells are overlaid with BME to create a 3-D matrix. This creates a more physiologically relevant environment for cell invasion and allows for real-time monitoring of cells producing true invadopodia into the detection zone.
