Oris Cell Migration Assays (CMA) from Platypus Technologies use a 96-well plate with “stopper” barriers that create a central cell-free Detection Zone for cell migration experiments. Removing the stopper allows the cells to migrate into the Detection Zone at the center of each well.

Oris cell migration assays

Be confident in your data:

Oris CMA provides consistent Detection Zones to give you superior reproducibility in your experiments. Oris CMA is the best option if you want publication-ready, high-quality data with fewer samples.

RIGHT: Data from Scratch Assay (Wide Error Bars = Low Precision)


Experiment, Fast:

The OrisTM CMA can be used with any adherent cell line, and the wells of the assay are coated with an extracellular matrix (Tissue Culture, Fibronectin or Collagen I) to support the most popular cell lines. Additionally, the OrisTM CMA is compatible with multiple plate readers and high-content analyzers, so you can rapidly quantify cell migration at any time during the duration of the experiment.





Use the OrisTM CMA to identify cell migration inhibitors and cell migration promoters. For researchers in academia and pharmaceutical companies, OrisTM CMA is a powerful tool to advance studies in drug discovery, wound healing, or cancer studies.
