General description

Device Configuration: 6-well plate, 0.4μm pore size

With Millicell® inserts, attachment or suspension cells can access media from both their apical and basolateral sides. Cell growth, structure, and function more closely mimic what occurs in vivo. In addition, Millicell® inserts make it possible to study both sides of the cell monolayer.

Millicell® Standing Inserts:
- Promotes excellent cell growth and provides an exceptional opportunity for cell studies
- Available with Biopore (PTFE) membrane, MF-Millipore (mixed cellulose esters) membrane, and polycarbonate membrane

Membrane Type:
Isopore Membrane (polycarbonate)
- For growth of attachment-dependent cells without matrix
