It has been demonstrated that endothelial cells will rapidly form capillary-like structures in vitro when plated on top of a reconstituted basement membrane extracellular matrix. Using this method, it takes around a week to see any tube formation. However, our Universal Tube Formation Media provides a quick and robust method to measure the ability of endothelial cells to form three-dimensional tube structures in vitro in less than 18 hours. 

Applications:

  • Study angiogenic and antiangiogenic factors 
  • Define mechanisms and pathways involved in angiogenesis
  • Define endothelial cell populations.
