Cell Growth and Analysis Product Line Expanded

Millipore Corporation has announced the introduction of a 96-well Millicell plate that is optimized to grow and sustain high integrity cell monolayers. Cells grown on Millicell plate membranes grow better than on plastic because the cells are nourished from both the apical and basolateral sides. Cell growth and function more closely mimics in vivo conditions. Millicell 96-well plates are designed for analysis as well as cell growth and can be used manually or with automated cell seeding, feeding and washing systems.

Last year, Millipore introduced both 24-well Millicell plates and single-well Millicell hanging inserts. The 96-well plate further extends Millipore's product offering and enhances usability in a range of laboratory environments. Like the 24-well and single-well versions, the 96-well Millicell plate incorporates track-etched thin film membranes for reliable monolayer formation; microscopically transparent membranes for easy cell visualization; and fluorescence-compatible plastics and membranes.

The Millicell 96 device is available with a 1.0 µm polyethylene terephthalate (PET) membrane. The 96-well plate is designed for maximum user convenience and incorporate an apical assist feature along with easy basolateral access. To reduce the risk of monolayer contamination, the membrane plates have feet to elevate the plate above the work surface when disassembled from the feeder tray. Teardrop-shaped receiver wells eliminate air bubbles as plates are assembled.
