Cell migration: cell exclusion assays

Cell exclusion zone assays differ fundamentally from wounding assays; instead of removing a part of the cell culture, they provide an artificial barrier to the culturing area.

Wound healing assays: single-cell migration assays

Cell migration is involved in a multitude of critical physiological and pathological processes. Cell motility can be divided into collective and single-cell migration. Single-cell migration is used by cells to move towards and between tissues, and it can be split into amoeboid and mesenchymal migration. A variety of in vitro assays have been developed to study single-cell migration.

Can your University use live-cell imaging in a classroom? - Part 1 - Lux2 for educational purposes

Live-cell imaging is the study of living cells using time-lapse microscopy. It is a technology that can contribute to a better understanding of biological functions through the study of dynamic cellular processes. However, besides the contribution to research, it can also pay a significant contribution to the way certain educational programs are currently organized.
