General description

Replacement for MCEP24H48

Millicell®Hanging Cell Culture inserts with Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) membrane are ideal for the growth and differentiation of various cell types. This individually sterile-packaged insert has an 8.0 μm membrane pore size and fits in most24-well plastic tissue culture plates.

In plastic tissue culture plates, cells can access media only from their apical sides, but in Millicell® tissue culture inserts, cells can access media from both their apical and basolateral sides. As result, cell growth, structure, and function more closely mimic what occurs in vivo.

The insert’s flanged design suspends it within the culture plate well and makes it possible to access both sides of the cell monolayer. Spaces between three protruding arms facilitate pipetting between the outside of the insert and the culture plate well.
