Work well for certain applications but can be pricey.
Application Area: Assessing drug release from microparticles
"Transwell plates offer a fantastic means of assessing drug release from the drug delivery microparticles we synthesize in our lab, without worrying about direct interaction with cells. I like that you can choose various mesh sizes depending on you application and or cell type. I find the inserts somewhat hard to remove sometimes but they work well nonetheless. My only complaint is pricing, which seems a bit excessive considering they are merely 24 well plates with plastic inserts, but there is nothing comparable available that works as well."

Cost effective lab consumable
Application Area:cell culture
"This is a must for our basic science research lab. We go through these consumables on a daily basis. It is easy to use and cost effective. We will definitely purchase these again."
Transwells are treated for optimal cell attachment. They are supplied sterile and come pre-loaded in 6-, 12-, and 24-well cluster plates or dishes. Cells must be stained for cell visibility. The polycarbonate membrane is compatible with most organic fixatives and stains. Packaging: 4 plates, 48 inserts
