Traditional techniques for studying chemotaxis, such as Boyden chamber assays, are limited due to their endpoint nature and inability to visualize cells. A novel technique is presented that generates kinetic, automated, image-based measurements and movies of chemotaxis in a reproducible 96-well format. This technique offers the advantages of visual confirmation of migration and morphology, reduced cell requirement and the use of biologically relevant surface substrates, with or without fluorescent labels.
