The BD BioCoat Control Cell Culture Inserts are designed to be used alongside BD BioCoat ECM cellware. They closely mimic in vivo environments and enhance expression of cell-specific morphology.
The low pore-density, track-etched polyethylene teraphthalate (PET) membranes offer convenient viewing of living cells with a phase-contrast microscope and have low-binding properties that minimize small molecule loss. The microporous membranes permit diffusion of ions, low-molecular-weight proteins and other substances to both apical and basolateral cell surfaces, simulating the natural environment of cells in vivo.
Supplied in ready-to-use BD Falcon® companion tissue culture plates. Stable for at least 18 months after shipment when stored at room temperature. Do not freeze.
