Cell Based Assay and Tissue Reconstruction in ThinCert Cell Culture Products
Ethical, scientific and financial concerns lead to an increasing importance of cell based assays and three-dimensional cell cultures in lieu of live-animal experimentation. With respect to these developments, ThinCert™ cell culture inserts with porous PET membranes are significant because they form a two-compartment system to readily mimic a variety of in vivo situations, such as:
1. Cell migration and invasion,
2. Interaction and communication of physically separated cell populations (co-culture)
3. Trans-epithelial transport,
4. Tissue growth and differentiation at the air-liquid-interface.
This presentation provides detailed insight in the different application fields of ThinCert™ cell culture inserts. Hints for the individual experimental design and the selection of the appropriate insert type are given.
