Angiogenesis Assay Kit

Angiogenesis, the growth of new blood vessels from pre-existing vasculature, is a normal process in growth and devel­opment, as well as in wound healing and tissue granulation. However, it is also involved in a number of patho­logical processes including formation of malignant tumors and metastasis, rheumatoid arthritis, and macular de­generation. The principal cells involved are endothelial cells, which prolifer­ate to provide the necessary number of cells needed for making new blood vessels. A fast and simple assessment of angiogenesis is the measurement of the ability of endothelial cells to form three-dimensional structures (tube for­mation).

PromoKine’s Angiogenesis Assay Kit provides a robust method to determine angiogenesis in vitro in less than 18 hours. This tube formation assay provides a simple, easy to perform, semi-quantitative tool for assessing an­giogenesis. After staining the tube with the provided fluorescence dye the ex­tent of tube formation, such as average tube length and branch point, can be quantified using imaging software. Each kit provides sufficient quantities to per­form up to 50 assays in 96-well plates.

The ECM Solution included in the kit is growth factor-reduced and endotoxin-free.
