Measure Angiogenesis in Real Time using GFP labelled HUVECs

The Cellworks' GFP V2a Kit - Vasculogenesis to Angiogenesis, is a validated, in vitro, human primary cell co-culture model of angiogenesis.  Using GFP, it allows the dynamic measurement of all phases of the angiogenic process. Tubules formed contain a lumen and resemble the morphology and range of capillary lengths found in microvascular beds in vivo. 

For bespoke assays, angiogenesis tested GFP human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC) are available. These bring greater assay flexibility allowing the user to have complete control over the number and cell types present in the angiogenesis assay and the opportunity to manipulate cells prior to culturing if necessary.

Find out  more about these exciting new products https://www.cellworks.co.uk/gfp_v2a_kit.php
