Semi-Automatic Analysis of Invasion and Migration Transwell Assays (I-AbACUS)

Transwell assays are another common experimental approach for the quantification of migration and invasion (see also Automatic quantification of (cancer) cell invasiveness). This method relies on a semi-permeable membrane and a layer of ...

Automatic quantification of (cancer) cell invasiveness

Quantification of (cancer) cell invasiveness can be obtained through the "scratch wound healing assay", a simple experimental framework evaluating the rate at which the tested cells are able to fill a gap expressly produced in a confluent culture. Despite its being widely used, the approaches used to analyse this in-vitro assay lack standardization and do not allow ...
