Transwell® Permeable Supports

  • Convenient, easy-to-use permeable support devices for anchorage dependent and anchorage independent cell lines
  • Produces a cell culture environment that closely resembles the in-vivo state
  • Enables growth of specialized cell types, in particular polarized cells, to study transport, secretation and absorption


  • Chemotaxis assays to study wound repair, cell differentiation, embryonic development and tumor metastasis (See Application Note CLS-AN-061)
  • Co-culture of cells to evaluate secreted soluble factors mediating changes in cell behavior in the absence of cell-cell contact (See Application Note CLS-AN-173)
  • Drug transport of small molecules evaluated using epithelial or endothelial monolayers cultured on permeable supports (See Application Note CLS-AN-058)
