Cultrex Spheroid Invasion Extracellular Matrix Summary
Why Use Cultrex Spheroid Invasion Extracellular Matrix?
The Cultrex Spheroid Invasion Matrix is a proprietary extracellular matrix blend comprised of basement membrane extract, derived from murine EHS sarcoma cells, and collagen I, from bovine extensor tendons. This matrix forms a hydrogel network on which invasive cells can travel out of a preformed spheroid. Cell invasion is visualized microscopically and can be quantified through image analysis software.

Embedding Spheroids in Cultrex BME for Cell Invasion and Migration Assays. MDA-MB-231 (3,000 cells/well) formed spheroids in low adhesion plates for 72 hours using reagents in the Cultrex 3-D Spheroid Basement Membrane Extract Cell Invasion Assay (Catalog # 3500-096-K). Briefly MDA-MB-231 cells were cultured in the presence of 1X Spheroid Formation Matrix (Catalog # 3500-096-01). Then spheroids were embedded in A) no Invasion Matrix, or B) Spheroid Invasion Matrix (Catalog # 3500-096-03). After hydrogel polymerization, DMEM and 10% FBS was added to each well to promote a chemotactic response over a 96 hour period. Note the addition of the Spheroid Invasion Matrix enhanced cell invasion over spheroids cultured without embedding in the invasion matrix.
