Cell Migration Assay
Multi-point image capturing and quantification
Cell migration assays are used to study the cell migration enhancement by pharmaceuticals and cosmetic products owing to its ability to evaluate the cell migration capability in the wound healing*1 process.
A multi-well plate is commonly used for experiments as it caters to comparisons of a large number of samples in the same environmental conditions. However, rapid observation and measurement of numerous samples not only require time and effort, but also are prone to variations in comparison standards arising from different operators using different measurement conditions.

*1 Wound healing:
Epidermal cells and fibroblasts multiply and migrate toward a wound, making the wound smaller and eventually completely plugging it.
