PermaCell Cell Culture Inserts

MatTek PermaCell Cell Culture Inserts are sterile devices used for the growth and differentiation of cells. The 8mm inserts are uniquely made to function as either standing or hanging inserts, allowing researchers increased flexibility when designing studies. The inserts are sold as individual components in 24-well plates, and can be used in 6-, 12-, and 24-well culture plate formats. Various membrane types allow researchers to select inserts for specific needs, such as cell attachment, culture, differentiation, drug transport/permeability, and imaging studies.
