The most frequently used one is a blind-well chemotaxis chamber [modified Boyden chambers such as those used for classic neutrophil migration (chemotaxis) in which endothelial cells are placed on the upper layer of a cell-permeable filter and permitted to migrate in response to a test factor placed in the medium below the filter].
