A fully automated solution for conducting cell migration assays using the AutoScratch Wound Making Tool
Presenter: Joe Clayton, PhD., Principal Scientist
Cell migration is the movement of cells from one location to another, driven by complex environmental signaling events and induced structural changes to the cytoskeleton. Multicellular organisms rely on cell migration for a vast array of biological processes, including embryonic development, immune responses, and wound healing. Cell migration is also critically important to various pathological processes, notably cancer metastasis.
In this webinar we will demonstrate a fully automated cell migration assay using the AutoScratch Wound Making Tool, which provides a convenient and reproducible method for quantifying 2D cellular migration in either 24- or 96-well formats. Additionally, we will present tips and tricks for optimizing scratch assays, including sample preparation, post scratch washing procedures, and techniques for ensuring accurate and meaningful quantitative results.
