I am new to this assay and have collected and tried a few different protocols. I am working with various different cancer cell lines.
The problem (?) that I am consistently facing is that cells from the top agarose layer "sink down" through the agarose and adhere to the plastic below. I am seeing this with all cell lines that I am working with. Is this normal? If not, how do I prevent this?
I have tried using the bottom later at 0.5 and 0.7% low melt agarose with a top layer of 0.3%. I am doing my assays in a 6 well cluster plate and using 10000 cells/well.
Any help or advice is much appreciated!
