Fluorescent Labeling of Rat-tail Collagen for 3D Fluorescence Imaging
Author:  Andrew D. D Doyle, date: 07/05/2018, view: 522, Q&A: 0
Rat tail collagen solutions have been used as polymerizable in vitro three-dimensional (3D) extracellular matrix (ECM) gels for single and collective cell migration assays as well as spheroid formation. These 3D hydrogels are a relatively ...
