The migration assay (also known as the Boyden Chamber Assay) is a commonly used test to study the migratory response of endothelial cells. During this assay, cells are placed on the upper layer of a chamber and a solution containing the test agent is placed below the chamber. Following an incubation period, the cells migrated through the membrane are stained and counted.
