Millipore has introduced a new 24-well cell culture plate which has
twice the membrane surface area compared with other 24-well plates,
allowing researchers to utilize greater cell mass, which more
closely models cell behaviour.

The 24-well Millicell cell culture plates are automation compatible and reduce the risk of monolayer contamination with "footed" membrane plates that remain elevated when disassembled from the feeder tray, and raised-well edges for better tape seating.

In addition, teardrop-shaped receiver wells are designed to eliminate air bubbles as the plates are assembled.

>Millipore​ has also launched a new range of hanging single-well cell culture inserts. These Millicell inserts are available in 6, 12 and 24-well sizes.

Low throughput assays can be performed in the single-well unit and design features include an off-centre insert for easier media addition and removal. Standing inserts also are available.

The new cell culture plate and inserts incorporate track-etched thin film membranes for monolayer formation, microscopically transparent membranes for easy cell visualisation and fluorescent-compatible plastics and membranes.

Both products are designed to support suspension and adherent cell growth and differentiation, and can be used in a variety of cell culture assays and laboratory environments.
