QuestionEdit

How was the neutrophil chemotaxis assay conducted?

Chemotaxis Assay.Edit

"Chemotaxis was performed in a 48-well microchamber (Neuro Probe) using a 5-μm-pore polycarbonate membrane. Neutrophils (1 × 106 cells/mL) were allowed to migrate toward CXCL2 (30 ng/mL) or medium alone at 37 °C with 5% CO2. After 1 h, the membrane was removed, fixed, and stained. Neutrophils that migrated through the membrane were counted under a light microscope on at least 5 randomly selected fields." From Alves-Filho et al. (2009)

A very detailed protocol to set up the plate and apply the samples can be found at http://www.neuroprobe.com/protocols/A-series.html
