APPLICATIONS

  • Fast track small vessel formation assay with INM
  •  Small and large 3D vessel formation assay
  • 3D cell culture with sceMatrix

KEY ADVANTAGES

✓ INM induces fast differentiation and reorganization of endothelial cells, resulting in microvessel formation
✓ The directed process of polygonal microvessel organization involves cell communication, relocation, spatial collective organization, differentiation and is visible within 2-3 hours
✓ Fast induction of INM minimizes the time required for tube formation of endothelial cells
✓ Easy handling with sterile, thin-head forceps
✓ Several INMs can be applied per cell culture well
✓ The complete process, including tissue remodeling, is accessible for microscopic observation and does not require tissue disruption

ANGIOGENESIS MICROVESSEL FORMATION ASSAY

Angiogenesis microvessel formation assays typically use an extracellular matrix -obtained from Engelbreth-Holm-Swarm mouse sarcoma cells. This extracellular matrix inhibits endothelial cell migration and proliferation and causes apoptosis (cell death) soon after the capillary like structures have been formed (within hours). INM feature is a faster approach for microvessel formation when used with the ANGIOstream kit. Microvessel formation involves cell communication, migration, spatial collective organization, differentiateion that lead to a polygonal tissue organization. The process starts to be visible within 2-3 hours and is restricted to the area covered by INM.
