Scratch Assay
BioTek’s Scratch Assay Starter Kit includes everything a researcher needs to implement automated, kinetic cell migration and scratch wound assays.
Automated Wound Creation
This is a tutorial video about optimizing your microplate-based scratch migration assays by effectively washing samples after scratches have been formed. Post-scratch washing is an important step in the wound healing assay protocol, whether you are generating your scratches manually, or using the fully automated BioTek AutoScratch Wound Making Tool to efficiently create uniform scratches in either 24- or 96-well microplates.
Automated Wound Creation
Upon completion of automated wound creation using the AutoScratch tool, automated plate washing can be achieved using the MultiFlo FX to remove cells dislodged from the plate bottom. A series of three plate washes are completed in a sterile environment followed by media and/or inhibitor addition prior to performing cell migration studies. Learn more at
