Provide independent access to the basolateral and apical domains of polar cells. Track-etched polyethylene terephthalate (PET) membranes have individual, cylindrical pores and are tissue culture-treated on both sides for cell growth. PET housing is not tissue culture-treated in order to limit cell growth on the side walls of the insert.

  • Translucent membranes for 0.4 and 3.0μm pore sizes have high pore density (HD) and are recommended for transport studies
  • Transparent membranes are recommended for visualization of live cells by light microscopy
  • Flanges on insert rim facilitate handling
