Chemotaxis Assay Chemotaxis Assay, Springer Lab. A chemotaxis assay's function is to assess whether a factor or molecule of interest has chemotactic activity on a motile cell type. Chemotaxis is the ability of a factor to cause the migration of a cell. The chemotactic assay is based on the creation of a chemical gradient of the chemotactic agent which will cause cells to migrate through the gradient towards the chemotactic agent.

TransWell Chemotaxis Protocol. TransWell Chemotaxis protocol. trans-well chemotaxis method from bioprotocol. The protocol is a method for studying migration towards a concentration gradient of chemoattractant of leukocytes (neutrophils, monocytes and lymphocytes) or other migratory cells. An upper chamber containing a suspension of cells is separated by a membrane from a lower chamber containing medium with chemoattractant. Chemotaxis of the cells from the upper chamber into the lower chamber can be quantified.
