In order for a tumor cell to metastasize, it must be capable of traversing many complex biological barriers. Because treating metastatic neoplasms poses many problems for the clinician, the elucidation of the invasion process is of vital importance for the successful treatment of malignant disease. The authors have developed a system for studying the invasive properties of cells that can be performed accurately with relative ease within a short period of time. This versatile system offers extensive applications for studying invasion properties and parameters. The model is classified as the Membrane Invasion Culture System.
