  • Tool name: HCT 116-I6 Invasive Cell Line
  • Tool type: Cell Lines
  • Tool sub-type: Continuous
  • Parental cell line: HCT 116
  • Organism: Human
  • Tissue: Colon
  • Cancer type: Colorectal cancer

  • Production details: HCT 116 cells were incubated in a Matrigel Invasion Chambers (MIC) for 72-96h. The cells that invaded through to the bottom chamber were collected and designated as ‘Invasive 1’ (I1). These cells were propagated and repeatedly passed through the MIC until highly invasive HCT116-I6 cells were selected.
