The Boyden chamber assay is widely used for in vitro measurement of the invasive capacity of cells. However, results can be affected significantly if certain precautions are not taken. Using the Boyden chamber assay we investigated in vitro the invasive potential of a variety of human gynecological tumor cell lines to degrade and migrate through the artificial basement membrane matrix Matrigel. However, in the absence of this Matrigel layer large differences were observed in the ability of… CONTINUE READING
