Research Areas: Cancer research

Cell Lines: MCF-7 (Human breast cancer cultured in matrigel)

Summary: The authors tracked and analyzed the migration of different MCF-7 cell populations in a 3D matrix. In addition to measuring the cell migration speed with HoloMonitor, the following five phenotypes were observed: ‘stable adhesion’, ‘unstable lamellipodia’, ‘bleb’, ‘stable bleb’ and ‘unstable pseudopod’.

Keywords: HoloMonitor M4, Cell motility
