Application Note: Speeding Up Angiogenesis Assays Using acumen hci
21 January 2013
With angiogenesis an increasing focus of cancer research, understanding the exact mechanisms of the process is becoming more and more critical to developing effective therapeutic agents. This application note demonstrates the ability of acumen hci from TTP Labtech to rapidly analyze and assess angiogenic tube formation in HUVEC cells. Since cell processing and labeling is performed with microplates, this technique is highly amenable to automation.
