MillicellMillipore Corporation, a provider of technologies, tools and services for the bioscience research and biopharmaceutical manufacturing industry, has added the Millicell 1 ?m, 24-well filter plate as part of its “Stem Cell Tested” initiative. Many of Millipore’s filter products will be validated for use on stem cells. Millipore’s Stericup with Millipore Express PLUS membrane was the first product available under this initiative. This Millicell plate is the second product available under the initiative.

Millicell filter plates are optimized to support suspension and adherent cell growth and differentiation in a more in vivo-like state than plastic culture plates. The membrane bottoms of the Millicell plates allow cells to access media on both their apical and basolateral sides. Additionally, these plates incorporate track-etched thin film membranes for reliable monolayer formation, microscopically transparent membranes for easy cell visualization, and fluorescence-compatible plastics and membranes.

The 24-well plate is designed for maximum user convenience and includes features that maintain assay integrity. Additionally, the 24-well Millicell cell culture plate has twice the membrane surface area compared with other 24-well plates. This allows researchers to utilize greater cell mass, which more closely models cell behavior. The 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. Teardrop-shaped receiver wells eliminate air bubbles as plates are assembled.
