Iwaki Vecell 3-dimensional cell culture inserts, available from Sterilin, are designed to provide improved cultivation of adherent cell cultures and reliable cell growth.
The Vecell 3-Dimensional scaffold promotes cell adhesion and proliferation
without causing cell stress.
The Vecell membrane is porous, enabling both cells and medium to easily pass
through, mimicking in vivo tissue. This encourages cell-cell interactions
and metabolic activities to occur as they would in their natural
Additionally, the uniformly thin layered membrane has a collagen coated
surface to aid cell attachment and promote cell growth. Further modification
is not required before seeding cells.
Cells cultured using a Vecell insert can be viewed using phase contrast
microscopy and the membrane can also be easily prepared for use with both
scanning and transmission electron microscopes.
Vecell inserts are sterilised using ethylene oxide gas and are supplied in
individual blister packs with pack quantities of 12 (for 6-well plates) or
24 (for 24-well plates) with a 2 year shelf life from the date of
Sterilin Ltd manufacture and supply a wide range of premium quality disposable
plastic products for the life science market including Petri dishes, sample
