Transwell cell culture inserts are convenient, easy-to-use permeable support devices for the study of both anchorage-dependent and anchorage-independent cell lines. They feature a 10 μm thin transparent polycarbonate membrane available in a variety of pore sizes. Transwell are treated for optimal cell attachment. Cells must be stained for cell visibility. The PC membrane is compatible with most organic fixatives and stains.
