PET (polyethylene) Permeable Cell Culture Inserts with 0.4 um pore size for 6 well plates.

Permeable cell culture inserts mimic in vivo cell growth conditions, in vitro. They are helpful experimentally when examining drug transfer, cell transport, cell migration and cell:cell interactions, for example.
Per ThermoFisher Scientific:
  • PC permeable cell culture inserts provide for excellent cell attachment and growth.
  • PET permeable cell culture inserts are most ideal for culturing cells to be fluorescently imaged (i.e. provide for better image quality).
  • Both PC and PET permeable cell culture inserts are good for barrier assays (which measure cell transport).

Inserts are suspended (hanging); they are centered and not touching the sides of the well; they sit just above the bottom of the well, allowing for growth of a cell monolayer.

Insert is made of polyethylene (PET), plate is made of polystyrene.

Inserts come pre-inserted into tissue culture treated 6 well plates, which are individually-packed. Untreated 6 Well Cell Culture Plates may also be purchased separately for your experimentation involving permeable cell culture inserts.

Sterile, DNase and RNase free and non-pyorgenic.

6 inserts/plate, 2 plates/case, (12) 0.4 um PET permeable cell culture inserts/case.
