The ready-to-use sticky foil with compartments that you can use for cellular confinement. It is designed to standardize the experiments and to minimize the consumption of reagents.

Standardized, reproducible environment
Wound healing experiments are traditionaly done by scratching a confluent monolayer, leading to poor reproducibility and non-physiological starting conditions. Stencell guarantees a collective cell migration in standardized, reproducible environments
Removable multiwell stickers
Stencells are thin sheets of silicone that stick tightly to glass and most plastics with no need for glue, meaning they can be removed later on. This, combined with their multiwell format, can create removable boundaries between cell populations or allow you to simply run more experiments per sample.

"Sometimes research needs a high level of versatility. This is exactly what appealed me when I met Vincent, Pierre-Olivier and Aurelien. They were hosted by the Cell Organ-izers joint research laboratory, set up by CNRS and our sister company Alveole. So they naturally turned to us when they decided to look for a partner to release their stencils. We knew that Stencell would be so useful to a lot of researchers who could save reagents and cells while testing new ideas and experimental conditions on small volumes. So we said yes immediately. On top of that, the three of them have proven to be highly reactive and proactive, engaged and enthusiastic. They love as much as we do testing new ideas and suggest others. It was a great pleasure to go through our industrial process together!"
