Angiogenesis and Tube Formation Assays
The tube formation assay, based on gel matrices, is a powerful and cost-effective method for screening the effects of drugs on the angiogenic potential of endothelial cells. This webinar gives a detailed overview on sample preparation, image capture and analysis, as well as available methods to interpret data for angiogenesis investigation.
You will see a complete experiment with measured data using endothelial cells on a Matrigel® gel matrix. We will highlight important experimental details, plus give advice on output parameters and assay reproducibility.
