CellDirector® – Live cell imaging in 2D and 3D
The CellDirector assay – in addition to providing excellent cell culture conditions – gives you the possibility to analyse real-time cell responses using live cell imaging, with full control of the chemotactic environment. Use CellDirector 2D or CellDirector 3D depending on your application.
For chemotaxis experiments towards instantly formed gradients in 2D cell cultures
Benefits of CellDirector® 2D
Cells adhere to the assay bottom and 2D chemotactic cell responses are captured in real-time in the middle gradient channel. Non-gradient cell responses are obtained from the two control channels.
For advanced chemotaxis and morphogenesis experiments in 3D cell cultures
Benefits of CellDirector® 3D
Cells, spheroids or small embryonic organs are embedded in a 3D matrix. A linear substance gradient is formed through the matrix, allowing for cell responses under in vivo-like conditions.
